Not sure that I understand that: we'll be home by the time it's 'published'!

If your're in a Rib, wind isn't going to be the major problem (apart from those that have curries on Friday nights
): it's mist and rain.
If you can't see where you're going then in a small boat - even if you're lucky enough to have radar and can use it - it's scary! Moderate or good visibility is good to go, but fog patches (unless thin) or thundery showers could give cause for thought. (Other weather sites are much less pessimistic).
I've a passage plan for the outward journey which I can forward to anyone that wants it to compare against their own. BUT (in accordance with Tim's good principal that you need to think for yourselves) it's only available in exchange for yours!
Mine doesn't yet have the weather forecast (not yet available!) but is otherwise complete.
