Saturday 7th November 13:00 GMT – Forecast – ESE 12/9, 21:00 ESE/E 9/12 – not bad if it’s high ESE, hopefully so. At the moment it’s quite a bit stronger than 12 knots, has been for the last 3 hours,...
Friday 6th November 13:00 GMT – Forecast, ESE, SE, ESE, E all 9/12 knots. Looks ok on paper, have to wait and see, the east at the end would be a nice finish but as we know that’s a long...
Thursday 5th November 13:00 GMT – Forecasts ESE 12, 15:00, E 12-9. After a tough day yesterday I need that east wind to turn up and hold today. I need no less than 30nm, really need more but got to...
Wednesday 4th November 13:30 GMT – Forecast – SE 12/15, in a couple of hours ESE 12/9, later E 12/9. Not too bad if it turns out right. Rough night with SE 15, on para anchor so thrown about all...
Tuesday 3rd November 13:00 GMT – Forecast SE 9/6 knots. Light wind all day, hardly any drift over nighty so indicates tough day. Did drift on course though so at least that’s a good thing. Hope it’s high SE or...
Monday 2nd November 13:00 GMT – Forecast all east, 15 all the way down to 6 knots, should be 15 now but very light, hope it picks up at dawn but unlikely. There was some ENE in there before but...
Sunday 1st November 13:30 GMT – Forecast – ESE-ESE/E-ENE, 12 knots dropping to 6 on the ENE. Not bad but I fear trouble in the wind, or more accurately in the current. First time in ages I’ve not gone back...
Saturday 31st October 13:00 GMT – Forecast SE 18 to 15 knots all day. Not great as this means one armed rowing if it goes low. It’s more SE/ESE at the moment. I just drifted last night as I was...
Friday 30th October 13:00 – Forecast – ESE-E-ESE, 12 to 15 to 9/12. Don’t want it to go light as it won’t help at all, at least it’s from a good angle. The wind last night did move up to...
Thursday 29th October 12:30 GMT – Forecast SE all day, 15/12 knots now and 15 later. There is a bit of ESE right at the end of the day but I’m not holding my breath. That could mean I get...
Johns tracker appears to have ongoing problems in providing a position update. It’s currently configured to send every 4hrs and the last report received was yesterday at 1600, so that’s 6 consecutive reports missed. We are currently looking into how...
Wednesday 28th October 13:00 GMT – Forecast just SE 15/18 – lightening storm in distance, wind blowing good. Drifted a bit high so have to keep to 270° this morning to reach the west current. All good though, got some...
The World’s Most Expensive Ginger Nuts Tuesday 27th October 12:00 GMT – Up early as boat acting weird. Forecast, SE 18/15/12. The current model which is based on the day before data showed a NNW current. I found a NE...
