Take the point George, but the reason for asking was to see whether I was unduly risk adverse compared to others. For the relatively long, uninteresting passage, wind against tide this weekend down to the Solent I was thinking a 4-5. The week started with a good forecast, but needless to say F6 gusting F8 has appeared in Sunday’s.

In the Solent depending on where I was going 5-6, given that the fetch is so much less.

I have sailed in 8-9 off Gibraltar which was great fun, and with low wave heights.

For me sun out or raining also makes a big difference….

Looks like Sunday will be a pub day.
