Well, I've good news and bad news for you.

The good news is that Richard B assured me yesterday's weather was going to be even better than Tuesday's and so we went out in the boat. In fact it was much worse - lots of horrible thick fog and some drizzle. No sunshine to be seen, which goes to prove that he is often totally wrong about the weather.

The bad news, though, is that the Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for Friday and Saturday, forecasting gales and storms, especially in the south, gusting up to force 9 / 70mph.

(Sorry Ian.)

Sunday may be OK???

We were going to

wait till near as possible to Sat for the most accurate weather forecast possible.

And only make cancellation announcements if /when we are really sure it's appropriate...

Trying desperately not to rain on the parade!!!!

Still Considering???

Will consider until about 0930 on Saturday - weather crappy = stay in bed.

Weather not too crappy = put boat in water and get to calshot for 1100.

Good news Daniel!!!the oul weather fronts can change their minds...looking like at least a 4/5 am ...perhaps 6 to gale 8 later; dry early, showers later...AT THE MOMENT!!! 24hr forecast should be helpful...

It will be great to see ye in the evening but we're boring oul farts...!!!there's a rumour that someone is going to bring his shiny new laptop in the hopes that one of the IT Nuts can show him how to switch it on, use html etc. etc. so that might keep a few of you busy for a while!!!!!!!!

K
(Oul Black Jack is a veggie as well but I think he has a secret chicken habit!!!)
