They're great at man overboard, after all they are "retrievers"!

He can out snore, out fart, out eat me AND lick his ba115 (or at least where they used to be), though I'm sure he'd let me if I gave him a biscuit

Bloody typical

Forecast has gone from very poor vis but dry, to very good vis & weather warnings for heavy rain, give me strength. Still no wind though

I think the problem for the forecasters is demonstrated by the Atlantic Pressure Chart:

Noon Saturday is T+60, and this shows an Occluded front right on our course across.

One side will be OK, the other cloudy and wet!

Met Office: Surface pressure forecast

Occluded front (or 'occlusion')

Occlusions form when the cold front of a depression catches up with the warm front, lifting the warm air between the fronts into a narrow wedge above the surface. Occluded fronts bring cloud and precipitation.

So, I guess we'll get what we get

Thundery bursts as well. Due to the height of Pikey's comms stack I would give him a wide berth.

Doesn't matter what weather site I look at for your cruise area I'm afraid it looks wet, but some sun and little wind. But ha its summertime you can't have evertyhing. For me the one aspect I like is little wind i'm sure you can put up with a little water enrouts. Just think of the Dark stuff and I don't mean the Wolverine TT

My drysuit as been in an out the bag all week, this weather forecasting stuff is a waste of time.
