That looks awesome but even so no way is 71mph that bad a gust - they have had over well over 100kts before now so how can anyone say "worst in living memory"???

In Lulworth it could well be-depends on the wind direction.

Scooted home at dusk on even smoother water with the lights of Edinburgh against a backdrop of Arthur's Seat and the castle. Lotsa wildlife too. A cool day.
Sounds excellent JW.

Nice to hear ye are enjoying the best of Autumn

Interesting stuff about the weather, good to see the RNLI were out trg at Bournemouth on thursday morining and again later that night. So about not supporting them and the lack of commitment you were talking about.
