Nippy - you southern wuss - ive been on the water at least 4 days a week all winter - even with snow on the beach

Drive it to southampton - that would be boring

It will be well tested by Jason.

Would have been fun for you tomorrow, Jono - Lands End to St Davids Head....

24 hour forecast:
Wind: south or southwest 4 or 5 for a while. soon south 6 to gale 8, later southwest gale 8 or severe gale 9, and perhaps local storm 10 Saturday afternoon.

Typically the one day I get off work and it's likely to be bringing a good 8 metre swell at the Heads - will make a decision first thing.

-Alex

Jono your quite correct. Remember we use flasks for storing Irish whiskey not soup down here.

Certainly it would be a great adventure so please do take a camera but I don't think its a trip for the faint hearted at this time of year.

Presumably this trip will qualify you for the black tie club (setting sail after mid night, into a F7, wearing black tie).

Pete

Me and the man Manning were out in this force 9 in my Zap Cat - to put a word to it "WET".
