We'll probably head back before the fireworks as we have to recover to trailer at Warsash, but cheers for the heads up. Hope to see you out there

Bugger! Launched, just as the heavens opened but decided to head across anyway. As we approached Cowes the cloud base was very low, rain was getting harder and there was no sign that it would clear anytime soon. So, we decided to bin it and head back, only for the roar of the Typhoon to carry across the Solent just as we arrived back at Warsash. Oh well, there's always next year

Know how you feel, We got into Ocean Village from Cowes being chased by the rain, and then as you say the clouds opened for three hrs!

According to Cowes Week organisers, all displays are still due to go ahead despite the weather. We will update you should this change.
