There's time for it to change. Will be making my decision over the weekend as to whether to launch on Monday or not. May launch regardless in the hope we have some good weather over the easter break even if Paris doesn't happen.

I updated the Garmin waypoint file this morning, it is on our web server here:

If the weather on the Friday is grim, but better on Saturday do you have wriggle room to leave a day later? I guess the Sunday locking is going to be the big problem.

Meant to be good luck.

The forecast for Friday on Windfinder has changed a fair bit eh! F4 SE, dropping to F1 by Sunday!

The Met Office are predicting a High the size of Canada lurking out in the Atlantic by mid week.
