Total bummer!! Days of high pressure and it goes to rats the moment a trip comes along. We had it in reverse on last weeks Sillies trip.

With the forcast in mind, I am now delaying my departure today. Intending to check again very early Saturday morning in the hope of some kind of moderation in the weather over night.

If it turns out that F6-7+ is blowing, then I'm afraid that I will bang out, I see little point in travelling 300 miles to get tossed about and wet (stand back and wait for the comments ....).

I still want to record my thanks to all those involved in the organisation, a fab job, well dones guys

Steve

IF the trip to-morrow is called off and anyone intends to 'come on their own' give me a ring on my mobile 07624-321982 and I can meet you here. If, as forecast, we have a F6-7 Easterly Douglas Outer Harbour is not the best refuge!!. However, you can go into the inner harbour but you will be tide-locked circa 3hrs either side of low water. Peel outer harbour is well sheltered in easterlies if you want to consider the west side of the island and available at all states of the tide.
