    When is this blowing wind going to stop? MSW shows very strong wind lasts right into next week. Got a boat booked for next Tuesday but looks like it's a non-goer. :no: :no: :no:

    Anybody got a boat cancelled so far?

    Just think how the skippers feel. Each cancelled day is roughly £500 down the pan.

    I keep thinking the same thing it is a right pain. Your Skipper will not put your safety at risk but if they think it is doable then I would think they would go.

    Its sod law if you organise a specific day to take a couple of lads out it blows a gale and I no there is nowt worse than having to tell the lads we cannot go.

    Last years forum boat trip was canceled twice and on the third time we got out but it was still a lumpy day. But we all got fish under hard conditions fingers and toes crossed for this years trip.

    I know the feeling... seems like this wind has been blowing non stop for the past month, every day off spoilt by it. I despair of getting afloat on the yaks before the cod clear off and we are onto pollack and bass

    Tomorrow (Thursday) looks like being the only day possible for a kayak launch until Tuesday at the very least. According to the BBC weather forecast, it's wind force 8 and WSW at Teesmouth, although it will increase to 11 by 19:00.
    With a high tide of 5.5 m just after 16:00, it might be worth a try. I'm considering it myself but of I do decide to make the trip, I'm only going to launch if I feel confident about it when I get there. It'll probably be South Gare, if anyone else is interested. :suspious:

    Think you mean 8 mph and 11 mph bud :embarrass: ,don't think anyone would want to be out there in a force 8 increasing to 11.

    Google Beaufort Scale :wink: :wink:

    Cheers, Shadrap. Yeah, I did mean mph. It might as well be Force 8 apart from tomorrow though, because it's just too windy for the kayak. :embarrass:

    Yes Glen, I wonder how the skippers make a living. Truely hope they all make decent money this summer.

    We were booked with Rich tomorrow but weve had to cancel due to the wind. As you say Rapin Youve gotta feel sorry for the skippers as it is their livelihood.
    That in mind lets hope that the summer months are fine and they all get bumper bookings.

    Thursday and Friday don't look too bad at the moment for a kayak launch, but it's too early to make any plans.

    I've got a booking on Sun 19th Festival, I really hope the weather will be kind to us, and of course to skippers. How much money now have they lost in the last month awful weather, thousands of pounds?
