Sun 11 July

Not much wind, but had a nice day out. Went up to Axbridge, with the wind dropping all the time! It was very pretty there - peaceful, sun, blue skies and twinkly blue water, and surprisingly not many boats out either. There was a steady force 3 blowing (W), so I went out on my biggest kit (105 and 6...

Sun 11 July

Despite the lowering water levels, weed and Sunday dinghie racing :evil: , I'm off to see whether I can salvage some sort of sail at Axbridge. I think I know how I am going to feel about the sailing there after a couple of great days at Weston, but at least I can give the kit a bath. Not sure what t...

It was a flukey call really, as I had no idea it was going to be as windy as that!! Yet again on the drive to the beach it appeared that there was no wind whatsoever, but it all changed on the sea front. I haven't sailed there in a southerly before - was v surprised how fantastic it was, and not nea...

I think it's generally picking up. There are some bigger arrows all across the SW on XC weather.
(Please don't hold me accountable though if it doesn't amount to
much :wink: )

Now 16mph at Bristol airport ... it's encouraging??

Anyone pondering on going to WSM? XCweather says 15mph at Bristol airport at the moment (not sure what it's doing on the beach). So can't be far off planing weather with big kit. What do you think?

Perhaps I should change my sign-off to "Nature playing with windsurfers!"

I'll shut up now and do some chores!

I'm not a WSM expert (have only been a handful of times!) - Justin and Matt are though :D My understanding is that there is more chance of the wind really blowing in and getting the Weston local effect when it's a W wind with sun. As it is a S/ SWdirection there is possibly less chance of it happeni...

Friday 9 July

A very pleasant time at WSM yesterday in the end. After deciding to go, I was seriously questioning my decision whilst enroute, as there was hardly any air movement. Arrived at the beach to find Matt and Andy (? non Nomad at the moment), plus an encouraging breeze that appeared to be building as the...

Anyone thinking WSM may be OK later today? Inshore waters shows a decent wind strength, but I don't know where all that wind is at the moment - not round here anyway :roll:

I'll add to my previous post ... you can't make the "wrong" decision going to a beach on a beautiful summer's evening irrespective of how strong (or not) the wind is . :D :D

Matt
Yes, no excuse!

Can't make my mind up - the chimes on my patio doors are beginning to make a sound. But non of the forecasts are really showing enough wind.
I know I'll make the wrong decision whether I stay here ... or go!!

If you have anything that could be of use, then please post on here (and your location) and we'll look into the logistics of getting it into the right hands. ...
