SOooooo ....... Hadyn and I took the desicion to abort this little adventure due to changed weather conditions overnight :cry:
We're gutted to say the least as we're both loaded up and nowhere to go :thud

With wave conditions at 0.8m reducing to possibly 0.6m, strong wind/gusts of 23 knots out by the forts wouldn't be pleasant :no

Even staying near the coastline has 0.6m waves with same wind and gusts so it'll be a lumpy slow ride at displacement speeds :no

We even looked at diverting to the south coast :idea: but it's even worse down there :cry:

So the 'right' decision was made and we'll re-visit this trip another time soon :drive

Guess I go and unpack as I've got nowt else to do :roll: :evil:
:cheers
I walked through the door marked 'EXIT' and life is now good!

Oh, this is a real shame :-(.
I spent the day fixing the washing machine, sorting out my WiFi, heling a charity collecting money, and fixing my loft ladder that the plumber broke so it was productive.

That's a real shame guys but a decision that's sometimes got to be made.
I remember very well the 2016 WWA where we ALL had to make the call launching out of Benderloch ..
Resulting in a profound f%@kthat !! :no

Better to loose the day than suffer hours of gruelling abuse by the winds n sea. :thud
F-RibsAndSibs.Com.... :whistle
Because it's a big old WWworld out there :mrgreen:
