You're a long way from the sea whichever way you go! Have you had the SIB out on the canal worrying narrow boats yet?

I have been sitting in the wings not wanting to be negative, but as Thomas commented GFS weekend is a nightmare, I live nr Arundel and usually can't make it out the house for three days. If your coming from the east stick to the a259 it's still bad but may be better than A27.

Right, we've had a council of war and decided that tangling with the traffic on Saturday just isn't worth the aggro. So we're going to take everyone's advice and give it a miss this weekend, sorry Mark!

It is a great day out though so will try to do it another time.

No worries. Determined to make the most of the weather this weekend so will still have picnic on our own most probably at East Head but coming round by sea. Having been to the festival of speed today, I can see that the roads are gonna be packed. We went by bike today, had a great run there and back but must have passed a minimum 6 miles of stationary traffic, and today was supposed to be the quieter of the days !! A great start to a great weekend for us.
