Fighting chance it may pick up later in the afternoon - while Rest Bay is shut out by the tide! Maybe an Aber job.

Oh well something had to be sacrificed !! And this time it's the small kites !! There is no bitterness here, but I do think Stuart should be banned from making too many comment about strength of wind Wink

You'll have to go to Aber Tony, Tom will be there from 11.00. Be careful though as it's forecast to be NNW and it might go quite off shore and it'll b pretty gusty.
It did pick back up here but there was constant showers killing it and it went NNW. Have fun, fingers crossed for the weekend.

It did go cross off here . Someone got caught out by it too . Packed the lifeboat off to pick them up as they drifted out to sea and eventually towards the steel works harbour wall. Be careful in cross off !

If it's any consolation I was at Aber today and it was ok, and nothing more. 10 knots with gusts to 15 - 20 but a frustrating day. The meter reads about 5 knots more than is on the beach I reckon.

It was also offshore at Aber so it would have been even worse at Rest. I only chanced it as at least there's the sea wall to catch you (not very advisable I know).

Best place will be Broughton without any doubt . Thats where I would be going if I didnt have two conf calls at 4 and 5 !
Rest would be good but tide is against you.

Rest would have been better today mike? Rest is the best place to go on a NO and even sometimes a NNW, it's cross / cross off at Aber on those directions.

Tomorrow should b ok direction for Rest, possibly Aber, just depends on how much N will b in it. Just look out for the tides at Rest.
