2024 April 16th Days 18, away to Hamble tomorrow?

The weather is still problematical but on Wednesday I should be able to move out, it is going to be windy but offshore at least until I am into the Solent. A problem was that the wind could be anywhere from NW to NE and still fresh by the time I get to the Hamble which would make getting onto the trot mooring difficult single handed with wind against tide, but I have been able to book a berth at the RAFYC from Wednesday morning through Friday morning which will be easier to get on to, save getting the dinghy out and making multiple trips to and from shore and hopefully give a more stable platform for repairs to the anchor windlass.

Selsey Bill to Lyme Regis - Strong wind warning

24 hour forecast: West or northwest, veering north for a time, 4 to 6. Slight or moderate becoming smooth or slight later. Showers. Good, occasionally poor.

Outlook for the following 24 hours: Northwest 4 to 6, veering north or northeast 3 or 4 later. Smooth or slight. Showers. Good, occasionally poor.

If I can fix the windlass in time I could then head off for points west on Friday morning.
