there is an occluded front sat closish which will either bring in more low pressure or remain constant,this can change as so changeable at the moment. there is no way of knowing but given the info looks 50/50 Sunday looks to be the worst out of the three but great for some airbourne fun!!

I'm good to go. It's not perfect, but it very rarely is.
SW wind direction on the return is a help as we'll have some protection from the islands for some of the way back.

Just read all the threads from this morning. I agree it should be a good weekend.
To put the weather in a nut shell expect a choppy mod sea state with 1-2 m wind driven swell. There will be white caps and a fresh breeze blowing between 15-20mph gusting higher. There will be showers,lots of cloud and some blue sky.
Go with that in mind anything less will be a bonus.
I probably have the least suited RIB with my Zodiac pro 5m so please wait for me on the way back I might be slow!

That's good to know.
I don't want to do the weather thing to death!! But just to back up what people have said these screen shots are off the
Magic Seaweed site. The first is swell height the second wind speed.
I do believe an early departure on Sunday will avoid the worst.

Ok, so who is in and who's a big girl's blouse?

Myself/Sticky, Jim and Ian are in.

Joking aside, 1/2m chop is quite doable. It's the 3/4m confused that becomes tiresome after 3hrs.
