Forecast is looking better again for both sides of the channel. May still be a good swell running but looks to be reducing as the day goes on. May be a few showers around but its all looking like a go.

Well done to the crews who went across today, not a bad average speed considering the conditions, still think your mad though

Been down checking the boat today . Our plan is to leave Portsmouth via the east at about 10.00. Catch the last of westerly tide . ETA Cherboug around 13.30 depending what we find when we get out past IOW.

Hope to see you all there.
