Mid Channel forecast has changed quite a bit overnight, 15-20 kts for most of today.

Tomorrow looks an awful lot better, wonder if I leave it for a day

Edit: Hmm, Channel light vessel peaked at 30 knots about an hour ago

Still a 5, you will barely feel it in your aircraft carrier

Good call . not too much wind here now - but lots of rain... localised flooding , thunder, lightning .. all standard for an English Summers day ...

I now plan a trip out Sat afternoon & Sunday - Poole, Studland, Bournemouth way ...

Hope to catchup .

Pete

Blimey, it's really nice this side of the channel!

By all accounts it's looking like a fantastic next 2 days at least from N Brittany all the way up to the UK south coast. Possibly a bit of a breeze on sunday

The weather is now starting to clear here from the West as forecast after flash floods have washed away cars (well, a Reliant Robin!) and closed roads throughout Bournemouth and Poole. Friday and Saturday are forecast fine but a weather warning for the area of heavy thundery rain has now been posted for Sunday - when I'm meant to be manning a BBQ at an ouside concert being given by Scurvey Crew's band.

M2 just being powered up, so they should be slipping lines in an hour or two
