"It looks like the weather may be improving slightly, but the forecast is changing by the hour!"

The above was totally wrong - please see George's post of the latest forecast. Whichever you look at, it's not good

"If things change for the worse plan B would be Windermere with a coffee stop at the Boat Museum!" - Even that is showing a northerly 4 and rain, so no fun there either>

Thanks George,

Not looking too good at all at the moment (Monday 1000)

Plan B was Duddon Estuary but that's looking as bad.

Plan C would be Windermere - but that has a northerly 4 and rain - so as we are doing this for pleasure I think it is time to call things off for another day.
