For those of you confused by the current range of wind forecasts, we at Datchet find XC is good for long range while Met Office (forecasting force 3/4 with gusts up to force 6) is better for the near term. Either way, we can be confident the event won't be a drifter and it will also pass the 'rule of 10' test used by one of our teams in the winter - if temperature + wind speed>10 it's good for sailing!
The short 'sprint style' races planned and rapid turnaround between races will also cut out 'hanging around time
See you tomorrow
