Like many other I too.........

..have my preffered links to various national, global and local weather sites. However, the best I've ever come across, by far has to be - for long range forescasting, I look out of the window before I go to bed and for short range forecasts, I look out of the window right now.

Lets face it, professional weather forecasters are a bloody joke. How they hold their heads up in public let alone in their own offices, astounds me If I made as many errors, got it wrong as many times and spoke such utter cr*p (well maybe you've got me on that one) I'd be out of a job before you knew it.
I'd rather trust the old bag who brings me my tea once a day and reads the leafs thereafter

Whilst the forecaster may be out, i have to say that everytime i go out i take a marine call forcast and chart (from the marina), really as reference for my logbook, however i have to say in the last year, they have been as close as you could expect.

I learned a good lesson about using the forecast properly, one day the forcast said F6 so i decided to poke my nose out of chicester, seemd OK so off i went to Brighton, just over half way i was F6>> waves everywhere (we were in a nelson not a rib), one second nose right in next props out of the water,,, i really was not happy, but it was my own fault.


For what its worth
