I thought he had that thing Batman uses? The one where there is a 3D map generated by all the mobile phones in the world?

This is very frustrating, but again the weather is starting to looking doubtful for me. I'm not sure I'm up for a moderate sea and F4 winds on what should be a pleasure trip. Just have to hope September proves more conducive.

Slightly embarrasing since I started this thread but looks like I'm going to have to take a rain check

I've got an old friend over from Cumbria for the weekend, would be nice to get him out in the boat but if we go to MstM from 6ish am till 10pm then that's a big chunk of his weekend gone, not really fair.

If the weathers not too bad I'll probably go for a quick spin somewhere, maybe lunch in Carteret or Guern

It's clearly going to be too rough; the forecast's gotten worse since last night. Next suitable weekend will be 11/12 September. I may try go to Avranches earlier that week if anyone's interested.
