Not sure if this should be a wind or powder alert but at last it looks like some wind and warmer temps for the UK from this Friday onwards. South coast looking good for a refresher session over the weekend then West Kirby might fire up on Monday or Southend with improving morning tides on Tues/Wed. or just move to Portland for a solid week of sailing :-)
Looking like a nice zonal setup for the next couple of weeks Mr. R, once we loose this easterly block with snow and ice. Save the powder for the Alps mate lets have some wind and rain for a change
No sign of a westerly being dailed in yet, certainly not within a reliable time frame, but with a zonal flow off the atlantic with some deep beef out there, we may get secondary developing storms in the primary systems southern flank circulation getting a good old slingshot into the UK.
Anyone think Wednesday might be OK for WK? Not pure West... but looks to me like it would be good for Alphas - or just some early season rig tweaking. But there is a BIG tide in the middle of the day :-(
Any thoughts - Tris
|Not sure about WK but I have my fingers quietly crossed for St Johns at lunchtime Tuesday. Tide is good lets hope it stays strong SW/SSW...|
Hi Tris, I might go Wed/Thu, the High tide will breach for 1hour either side of high tide so really need to be there early for a morning and arvo session. Southend worth a shout also but tides not great!!
Cheers Ian. Fingers crossed for Wells on Thursday.. it is starting to show as PURE West, which is what we've been waiting for... but the tide is not as low as we've sailed before... I just remembered how much time we waste looking at forecasts !!
hi Tristan, Wells is looking good-where do you park?, down the end of the caravan park?
Hi Dave. Yes - at the very end. It's about £4 for 3 or 4 hours ... and you will get a ticket if you don't pay - trust me, I know :-)
It might be a) too deep and b) not enough West.... but keeping an eye on it
yep get a ticket and glue it to your dashboard or it might blow away in all that wind , ah tris :)
i wish i could come ,either wk/southend or wells , stuck i think this week , good luck all who sail :)
