Wind looking good this Friday, low tide at Fleetwood at 15.12 . I've never sailed there myself, so would only make thew trip if other speedies where going . If anybodies up for a session can they either post on here on email me at paulburgess@arrowefarmtreecare.co.uk cheers Paul

A bit too uncertain to take a day off work and drive all the way for me I reckon. Be good if you could check it out for us though!
I'm very keen to go Roa on the next SWerly mind, looks a much better propositon than Kirby.

Did you go Paul?
I went to the ressy, powered up on the 5.6. Guess Fleetwood would've been good..

Yes me and Pete C went .Not a patch on WK , water quite choppy, also grounded fin on mussel bed, so didn't sail that close to sand banks after that. Not really fully powered  up on my 5.8, would have gone faster with 6.4. Would probably work better in an easterly as the east bank is longer and steeper so less chance of grounding.

Same here - GT31 automatic upload not working for me.

A bit too much north westerly to get up to the top speed strip easily and very chpooy on the way up.

The google earth overlay of the track shows the considerable upwind distance to get there.

The speed strip is the top left of the picture at :
