Rounding the Isle of Wight

Iíve had a trip planned for some months for this weekend to round the Isle of Wight with a mate, in my 4.8M RIB, 60HP fitted. Weather is not looking as good as it could be. Both my mate and I have been boating for some years around various bits of coast, but this will be our longest and most challenging trip yet. Just wanted to get some friendly opinions on whether these conditions are suitable. Click image for larger version

I've done the trips a few times, in a 5.3m, but personally I'd wouldn't set out to do it in those winds / seas. I'd wait for a calm day especially if this is your first time and your longest trip.
