CANCELLED STORM FRANKLIN WINS!


Sunday 1.30pm.. Looks like wind will reduce by mid-day Monday.

Still possible force 4-5 with gusts to 6. (Rain should have cleared)

I suggest a reduced distance paddle up the west side of the lake, hoping for some shelter. Then return along west shore.

Meet 11.00 for 11.30 on the water only if you fancy a breezy paddle. Understand if people don't fancy it. Please cancel if you wish.

I will rearrange the trip for Monday 14th March.

 

VERY STRONG WIND FORECAST FOR MONDAY MORNING.

WIND EASING BY MIDDAY. SHORTER TRIP POSSIBLE PM.

Sorry John, find myself tied up with contractors, I tried to change the dates but its difficult at the moment as they are all busy so its difficult to move dates around.

I was really looking forward to it. Cheers George

Hi John, thanks for the update. Steve and I will go for the March 14th option , please. That strength of wind might be too much for us tomorrrow , and driving down from Penrith with boats on the roof would be a bit dangerous. Thank you, and will look forward to March 14th . Nicola and Steve
