I see that on Metcheck we have a storm blowing in on Sunday afternoon.

Anyone got any better forecast.

Thanks Ben.

Thought it was you. You keep the RIB well wrapped up, but I knew it was Searider.

Weather Warning

I don't mean to hi-jack this thread and I understand how hard it is to arrange things.
But looking at www.metcheck.com for the Portsmouth area on Sunday and it looks like a storm is blowing in that day with lots of rain.
Whereas Saturday looks much nicer with lighter winds and lots of sunshine forecast.
Can anyone give a better forecast ?

Sunday is forecast as :-

9:00 hrs 19 °c 4 0.4 mm rain 85 % cloud cover 19 mph winds
12:00 hrs 19 °c 8.4 mm rain 92 % cloud cover 20 mph winds

Saturday Forecast is:-

9:00 hrs 19 °c 0 mm rain 4 % cloud cover 12 mph winds
12:00 hrs 19 °c 0 mm rain 2 % cloud cover 9 mph winds

Hmm. The bbc website says that it will be less windy on Saturday but just as wet (with sunny intervals).

I think we will stick with Sunday. Several people have arranged their weekends around this cruise so it might make it tricky if we moved it to Saturday. That is unless people feel strongly about doing it on Saturday........

I understand how difficult it is to move things but airing this now might give people a chance to make it on the saturday.

I'm just trying to use Ribnet and modern technology to its utmost. Obviously its got to be either the Saturday or Sunday. Saturday at the moment looks a lot better than Sunday. I guess by tomorrow night metcheck should be a lot more accurate.

Obviously we need to make a date at some time and stick to it. Metcheck shows a big difference between the Saturday and Sunday. Within 24 hours on Ribnet we should know what everyone prefers.

I can make either the Saturday or Sunday, although my passenger can't make the Sunday, so looks like I'm backing the Sunday now even though its going to be veryyy blowy I guess I'll just shut up now.

As previously said looks like its Drysuits and Gecko time.
