I'm going, three in my boat but if this is the forecast and it has been fairly spot on with its long range I won't be.

Check the wind speed out!

Maybe I'm looking at the wrong thing thing, but I'm seeing F2 gusting to F4 from the NW? You'd be lucky to get it that good, TBH

BTW, yr.no do predictions for mid-channel, I find them good on the North Channel and beyond so should be worth a look. Their wave height feature is a cracker.

31kph is a Force 5 gust

I'm loving Weather forecast for Irish Sea (United Kingdom) though!

If the weather is too bad to go, we're going by Stena Line in any event.

Don't worry about gusts, it's steady sustained blow that's the problem + swell. You can get a huge swell in the oirish sea in flat calm conditions (been there, puked in it) It'll do what it does. I never take much notice of long term forecasts, especially when they aren't telling me what I want to hear

Due to lack of equipment, competent crew and economical tow vehicle should we be unable to return, I have succumbed to the dark forces of the Black Shadow.

Enough of that bollocks. I'm in with the Captain himself, TT! Joined forces to form an invincible crew to land on Ireland and over run Willk ( ) whatever the welcome committee! Sod paint ball guns, I'm bringing the 12 bore!

Bring on the Guiness and single malt! (On arrival I might add!)
