Great to hear the Next Generation Ribsters will be along

The weather doesn't look hugely promising!

Let's all keep an eye on the forecast and say yay or nay definitely on Friday.

Will update thread regularly this week.

It may have to be the Lightship

(Bogib, condolences on your bereavement, sincerely, Kathleen & Paul)

Weather for Sunday is looking quite 'non-family orientated' at the moment. Saturday doesn't look too bad though.

Cheers for that Matt. A last-minute dash could therefore be called for Sat. depending on updates for next weekend (looking gloomy at the moment! )

(keep the updates coming. It may have to be a virtual boat trip. i.e. some daydreaming from the sofa with a bottle or two, watching Strictly, The X Factor or the gArfish's extradition from Kazakhstan to Calshot)

It's changing by the hour!

We could aim for the sub-Force 5 'window' between 09:00 and 15:00 on Sunday (if only the forecasts were that accurate!!!).

A bit of bad weather should make it more interesting. Time for drysuits perhaps!

I will be out in the morning with the lifeboat. It is not looking pretty, forecast 30 knots of wind from the west. High Water Cowes is 10.30 am therefore with wind over tide the solent will be an animal.

Cheers everyone for the weather updates

Love the lyrical description Simon 'the Solent will be an animal'.

There's probably a little gung ho in all of us that likes the sound of that However, & with apologies for offending the gArfish , the Solent may well be a right pig for the weekend.

Not the sort of weather for a fun weekend jolly en famille.

So we propose sitting it out and having a dekko at next weekend's conditions.

(Good luck with the lifeboat Simon & crew and hope you all & everyone else out there are safe today.)

Kathleen & Paul

Hi K & P
That seems like a plan, lady luck for next weekend then, more windsurfing for us though :-)
