I am planning on a travelling down to Falmouth with my Honwave T40 on Thursday. Aim to launch around 10am from the slipway by the maritime museum (not sure exactly when I will get there or recover so not planning on Mylor). Intend to camp over night then have a bit more fun on the water Friday before driving home.
The weather is looking a bit troublesome though, NNW winds at 18 mph gusting 32 mph on Thursday and 15 mph gusting 26 mph on Friday (which according to my RYA handbook is somewhere between "Getting interesting" and "Do something else").
I don't really want to travel 200+ miles to think "sod this" after few mins on the water. The forecast suggests this will be the case, but with the wind blowing from the land (albeit straight down the channel) does this mean it won't be all that bad? If so where would be OK to travel and any tips?
It's rare I get the chance to take my sib on the sea and while I don't mind if it's a bit cold and wet, I don't want to travel all that way if it is dangerous. I'll launch at Lechlade and potter about the Thames instead. Would much rather go to Cornwall though
