If the sea state is slight and the tides / wind is in your favor - wrap up and enjoy.

Check this out :XCWeather - Forecast for Whitby

You can always turn back when your out of your comfort zone.

Its my 2nd outing this Saturday down in the Solent, doing the Nacho run. Im happy to proceed until my wife starts to complain

It's really great being part of this forum and am learning all the time . Two responses one saying if the wind is slight ???? The other sends me a link that might as well be in Chinese !!!!
Only joking I do appreciate help and may one day understand you lot . So is it likely to be worth a venture or can someone help me understand the link so that I can work it for myself .

Another kind helper sent me a swell map link for whitby last month which I keep an eye on and if I am reading that correctly it seems that it might be a bit rough but Saturday has not altered all week so I don't know if they up date it or not .

where are you from, do you have far to come?

Derbyshire about 2 1/2 hours to whitby . Got my eldest home from uni at the moment and she did not make our virgin launch . She goes back that weekend . We could possibly tie it in as she is at Lincoln uni but it might be a bit too much to pull together in one weekend .

Why do you ask .?

Why not join us in the Solent this Saturday. Probably only just over 3hrs journey.

Yes it crossed my mind . Donna and me are heading down there at the end of the month for a couple of days . Your right it's not much further than whitby but It will probably be 3 1/2 hours each way and with two teenage daughters !!

How many of you guys are going and where do you meet .?

There is a separate thread on here you can read. We have around 13 to 14 boats so far. Most are launching from Lymington, I will be launching from Calshot. We will run up the Solent to The Needles, then pop into Yarmouth for Nachos at the Wheatsheaf.
