It is now Sunday, day 11 and I have been here 5 days and it looks like I will be here for a long time, I need a couple of days of clear weather and not much sea off of Lands End, at the moment there is no window apparent for at least a week.
Todays the wind is light but its forecast to come in from the North West - dead on the nose going to the Irish coast and almost so going to Milford Haven. Increasing to Force 6 at times tomorrow and it is a very cold wind. Depending on which model you look at there could be gusts over 40 knots on Wednesday or Thursday and another band of high winds arriving next weekend.
|The European Centre for Medium range Weather Forecasting|
(ECMWF) forecast gust map for early Thursday.
|And the ECMWF for next Sunday. 39 knots off Lands End|
but 57 Knots off the coast of Ireland and that could easily
be further east.
A rough sea is not normally something I will set out into, especially near Lands End. Very rough there does not bare thinking of.
