I won't comment on the weather as it changes every few hours at the moment however safe to say as long as it looks like it will clear later in the day I am going to be there

John Kennet has kindly supplied me with some free stickers for anyone who attends. Anyone who cries out at the last minute will be banned from RibNet for ever.

So the MET office is saying 35knts of wind , XC weather 22knts . Anyone care to tell me which it will be ?

If its 35knts I'll start dosing up on Dutch courage now & put even more faith in Avocets boat & helming ability !

Great - you won't be the only one requiring Dutch courage Blackroady - if the winds are that bad we won't be taking our RIB - I wouldn't be in a fit state for anything to eat on arrival!!

Have arranged to meet with Hightower to follow him across - so will hang on making a final decision until Friday evening - but now seriously pooping myself

Yes yes - I'm panicking

Matt - you are barking - lol

Is this a typical case of not reading the weather until you see it for yourself otherwise you induce panic amongst the crew and helm for that matter

About right!..Trouble is the forecasts,are just that.Hopefully wont be too bad by Saturday, especially as we've arranged to meet 'Avo and Crew' at Poole for the jump off! Time will tell.
Suffice to say 'Matt h' has got that far away look in his eye,and the slight slurr to his voice...which means only one thing...it'll take another 'Catrina' {at least !}to keep him on Terra fir-ma!.. Wouldn't mind, but promised Miche I'd look after him!
Don't Panic yet K, save your energy for Saturday

Crew seems to be just me at the mo ! Note to self - there is a reason I take boat out of water in the winter !

Everything crossed
