Hopefully! There's always a chance we may not be able to get in on Swansea due to tides / wind but all being well we should. Victoria Alun will b around with his telescope looking out for us so give him a shout.
There's actually going to b a marque with flags and banners on the beach outside the observatory so others will b gathering there.

is the wind station at Pembrey a high reader? I know it's further west and better in the southerly wind but seems strange theres such a difference between Pembrey and Rest. No good for me today but curious if people out west are getting out today......

Take about 5mph off the station and you'll be pretty close to whats happening on the beach
