Cheer up. You could be in The Midlands and have it coming down in buckets

We had a pretty good three weeks down your way. Managed over 300 miles in the RC: two trips to Fowey, one to Cadgwith, lots of other shorty stuff.

Its been pretty grotty on the South Coast too. At 0730 it was glorious, no wind and sea mirror smooth.
By 1000 it was blowing a steady 15-20kts, but the three trips we had booked in were well prepared and enjoyed both the wind and on the last trip, the rain!
All tucked away by 1500, as the wind is now at 33kts! Middle of August??
Tomorrow and the rest of the week is looking good ...

I was running Onboard Charters rib all day in The Solent and with the high winds and sea state it was a challenge keeping everyone as dry as possible.

The last run was fun, taking seven Moose over to The Folly Inn (it was a stag do all dressed in moose onesies).

Its currently blowing a hoolie, hope it eases off for tomorrows trips.
