Surely there is somewhere within drink carrying distance where we could picnic without offending the pub management?

Has anybody else been looking at the weather for Saturday? Seems to be possibly West Force 5. Now I know that we are all tough ribsters but does it seem to be a good idea to be rounding Selsey my reckoning at about 11.00 ish just when the tide is turning to give wind over tide situation?

As we are approaching springs at around 11.00 ish the tide will be approximately 0.8 knot and by about 11.30 2.2 knots against us and the prevailing wind! I can imagine that it could get quite nasty around there.

At around 9.00/9.30 I reckon the tide would be with us, making for a more pleasant trip.

This is my current thinking open to suggestions and advice. Clealry the weather forecast may change and it is too early to decide, but just throwing this into the melting pot!

It is not very wide by the Black Rabbit and there is only limited mooring place , not the best and probably only good enough for 1/2 ribs. There are very wide steps leading down into the river but these are not rib friendly. I am sure most of you would like to see Arundel and the Castle. However at low water it is like travelling along a canyon cos high banks and restricted visibility. as we would be going up at HW this would be a good cruise.

No harm in bringing ones own beer and wine with packed lunch.

I wouldn't start planning for bad weather yet - Andre's advice is sensible as the forecasts are usually only reliable 48hrs in advance. Last weekend was typical - early forecasts were pessimistic, then the weather was beautiful all weekend (except for the fog!)

Another option for avoiding the wind-over-tide and the dangers around Selsey is to take the offshore passage, which would be my preference in case of poor weather.
