"The outlook remains grim"

Started by Started by: rogerta
Reported in the Times

"The North Atlantic is in upheaval with almost the entire ocean from Newfoundland to Norway a battlefield of deep depressions queueing up to hit the British Isles. This barrage of gales is almost self-generating, churning up cold polar air with warm sub-tropical air in a collision powering the storms. The outlook remains grim: storms well into next month".

Its beautiful ain't it...

Anyone up for an early sail at Hayling tommorow morning (Wed)?

yeehah! But after an unfortunate monday off only for it to be TOO WINDY , Juan has given up and gone to work. Maybe on Saturday ???

how about bracklesham - should be good on a westerly

Added by Kiwi Steve on 24/11/09

Looking WSW and windy! I reckon Pagham will be very good option from midday to dusk with low tide at 10:24. Cross-off and riding action after a SSW gale overnight :) I've been sailing there a lot recently and it's been excellent!

BigSalty says best location is Pagham and the Kiwi reckons Pagham - so Pagham it is

there was a wave that wiped out all memory of waves before....seriously pagham was pretty good, but the highlight was derigging in a hail storm

Beth - I saw you score some great waves and linking up three bottom turns and top turns! I had to come in and change down to a smaller board and while I was doing that I reckon you scored the best conditions of the day!..and you wanted to sail Bracklesham!?

Looks like wind might be a bit more variable at the weekend so just in case I have taken today off. Am planning a low tide session at Hayling unless anyone else has any better ideas? I'm on xxxxxxxxxx if anyone fancies joining me

Pagham looks good for tomorrow morning (Sat). However it will need to be an early one - High water is 0742 and low water is 1336. I'm aiming to get down for between 8 and 9am.

I don't know if Pagham will be the best spot on Saturday as the tide on the drop after 9:30am will kill the swell there. A low tide spot like Hayling, Bracks or Shoreham would be a better bet than Pagham on Saturday?

Sorry Steve, you're right, it had just turned by the time we go there.

Added by beth on 27/11/09

It wasn't on the drop it was coming in - that's definitely the best time for waves at Pagham - maybe Bracklesham at midtide

Added by rogerta on 27/11/09

I'm up for Bracklesham then

Added by beth on 28/11/09

AAAh I missed it - I couldn't get out the door in time. How about Sunday morn at Pagham?

Added by rogerta on 28/11/09

Yeah I'm going to try Pagham early doors - 8am - to catch high water
