Should be okay for a trip to Cowes though. Looks like the wind is coming in late saturday and hanging around for the sunday. Lets hope it slips back 12 hours as this weather at the moment is perfect.

Not being too familiar with the wind and wave patterns over there, how lumpy/wet are we saying a W4 will make it? I'm bring about 17 people over and will need to prepare them or worse case, call it off!
At what point would you say NO? or BUMPY AND WET?

Milo it's worth waiting a few days for the most accurate forecasts.

Then it could be worth taking 'wind over tide' & distance to travel (& see below!) into consideration when making final preparations for your trip.

Thanks for latest weather updates! Keep 'em coming!!!!

Going down to the sea again...

Note to self : Aging Youth will be boarding at Portsmouth.

Paul ('jackeen') 07790 551442 and Jimbo (or any of the Portsmouth boats really! ) will be happy to be contacted re: mustering at The Lightship.

Comms Chn 77 (& QHM always reminds us to pay attention to Chn 11 within the jurisdiction of the Harbour).

Is anyone willing to act as point of contact/rounder-upper from the West?

Please keep weather updates coming

Kathleen & Paul

Milo72 the forcasts will chop and change a bit until Wednesday evening/thursday morning when they become more accurate. The overnight forcast from both ECMWF and weather online have both improved overnight. Wind now W 3-4. The next forcast from ECMWF for 12:00 Saturday will be available at about 19:00 tonight, I will update when I get it.

Lovely. many thanks.

Now, I have another Question.... England play Wales on Saturday 17.30 in the 6 nations. We're not going to make it back in time so can anyone recommend a pub in the Lymington area that's likely to show it? bear in mind, we'll be towing a 7.5 and a 10.5!
I've spoken to the Mayflower and they only have a portable!

Day on the water, good company, bit of lunch, beating wales at rugby.... an excellent day!
