RIBase
My drysuit is currently being repaired (new feet being fitted) in readiness for using the rib throughout the winter. My aim is to use the rib at least one a month (hopefully more but at least once every month) throughout the winter. Should be toasty even in Jan in my drysuit.

I did mine over the weekend 12/13 in very similar conditions, it was blowing about 30knotd and very lumpy.

They still took us out though, we had to passage plan and whilst out on the water take bearings etc to reference points we made!

The rib we were in have a nice deep vee and handled the conditions very well!

Just get some decent foul weather gear, hat, gloves, boots, you will be fine.

The company will decide whether it will be called off or not.

I am not getting 30 knots for
Thursday only 25 but either way Southampton is a sheltered place for training .
I am out running a Yachtmaster work up so will look out for a bedraggled bunch on a Ribcraft which are good sea boats so you will be fine.

Forecast has come down a little since I first posted this. As you say they'll know where will be a little more sheltered if necessary.

Can't wait
