    Being pretty new to all this, I'm, perhaps naively, hoping things still go ahead.

    In case she reads this, it'll be wonderful, I'm really looking forwards to it. A nice wet weekend in July :nailbiting:

    Will also be my 4th weekend's diving blown out this year. I've only managed three boat dives thus far in the UK this year.

    I have also been staring at the same page. No doesn't look too bad. Maybe it will be OK.

    This end of the channel (Hastings) is fine. Looking from the beach anyway.

    Just have to wait for the skippers decision on Friday evening.

    Checked my hotel booking - can't cancel, so that's £200 down the Swanee... Same with my last weekend's diving which cost me £80 as I couldn't cancel the hotel in Dartmouth. Must remember this when I book my next rooms

    That's what I like about the Kynance in Plym. They appreciate that it doesn't always go our way so are very good regarding cancellations.

    I've pinged a message to KyarraBookings about the shuttle status. Hopefully hear back soon.

    It's starting to look quite placid now.

    According to the BBC, it's backing south which isn't a good direction for Swanage.
