Looking like S’ly 4 to start with and getting increasingly ‘interesting’ as we go through the morning.
If the forecast stays as it is I will be heading out at 08:00 and try and get a bit of a lee off the Island.
If it gets too nasty will head home!

Both CTC and CPC have reduced courses due to the weather forecast for tomorrow, class three are staying in the Solent and the marathon boats are doing two laps around Bournemouth / Poole before they head back towards Cowes. We’ll be marshalng off sconce buoy ( hurst area ) - should be a fun day, if not a little wet

Thanks for the info. I’ll be off Cowes to watch the start and then we’ll see what happens!
