Weather update

We were going to set off tomorrow . . . it looked like a reasonable plan right up until the next set of GRIBS came in an hour or so ago . . . now it looks as though if we did that we would arrive off the Scillies or the Lizard in 25-30 knots or more and pouring rain / poor vis.

Next possible window is 18 hours after that, leaving early Thursday morning and getting in to St Marys or Falmouth sometime on Monday before the wind goes NW, but we will look at the weather again tomorrow.

There is allegedly a high pressure building at the beginning of next week so we are keeping our eye on that as well.
