Well why break with Tradition Tony! Poxy weather on the Friday as usual to give the Paddies a bumpy run up. If we survive it we'll be able to relax for the rest of the gig

As we have watched the long range forecast it has shown everything from Force 2 and blue sky to Force 6 and snow showers for this coming Saturday. Long range forecasts are difficult to interpret however things appear to be settling down and if I take a personal view ( and there is still 5 days to go) I believe Friday may not be the greatest day. The wind will be dying through the day but the rain has to go through first. From late Friday the wind will drop with Saturday perhaps overcast to start but winds light. Sunday is to be a blue sky day.
Where we are fortunate, assuming the forecast is correct, is that the winds Thurs and Friday will be from the N/NE so this means the sea will flatten. Whilst there may be a bit of residual swell on the way down to Loch Tarbert it will be fine inside the Loch.
Returning up from Craighouse should be relatively easy in these conditions.

I will update the weather on Wednesday when Ted will also send out final information update.

Here's to sunshine and calm seas.

Tony

Tony been tracking that depression they said would be over us Friday and it looks like it has dissipated a little and is coming in late Thursday at present so maybe the wind will shove it a bit more but yes weekend looks good
