Hopefully. I'm all ready to go, got some prop testing to do but the forecast is looking pretty miserable

Tuesday looks good! I have never seen a dark blue for sea state on Windfinder before.

Lunch in Dielette?

I should probably post a screen grab as it will no doubt disappear.

A sea state like the one they are predicting only ever happens when the pixies are out all night polishing the surface of the water, last time I took the RIB out in such conditions I had to throttle back because I thought I was going to travel through time it was so quick!

*Cough* sicky *cough*

Well, I'm based in St. Malo for my boating so if any of you do ever decide to come over on a jolly, do let us know and I'll come out and join you! Entrance to the "Rade" can look a little daunting on charts but it's really very easy if you follow the channels, though strictly speaking a ribs draft doesn't even call for that!

I may also be up for a run over to Dielette or Carteret, however only been out in the Vipermax once so far, so I've a bit of experience to gain before being able to dive into such trips!

Oh and Malthouse, if you're referring to times when the sea is as flat as a millpond, in fact it's actually quite a common occurrence round here - especially in the Baie de Mont St. Michel!

What I struggle to understand is how the wind can die so dramatically and they still show an increasing wave height during the day. Surely any Atlantic swell will have arrived well before then?

On the subject of cruising in company, I managed to get myself roped into helping out with St. Helier Yacht Club's new(ish) RIB section.

The idea is to get some of the more experienced ribsters together with the noobs to pass on their knowledge and skills as RIBs are proving to be a popular 1st boat for many people.

I will post on here details of any organised cruises or other gatherings to hopefully boost numbers a bit more
