Friday 4th October

So, a very wide range of forecasts on offer as the low pressure track is a bit unpredictable.
BBC and met office are both suggesting it will track up the west coast of Ireland.
The challenge is what pressure differential will be on the east and south of it.
Some sites saying westerly 20 to 30 knots.
Some sites saying more NW and 15 to 30 knots.

That’s a wide spread and the difference between joy and pain, so maybe check first thing before tracking to the beach!

I see the Met office now have a long period swell up the channel as far as Bracklesham. Kimmeridge will probably be great for the pros but I think I'll give it a miss for a first visit!

KBay looking pretty blown out compared to more x-off Highcliffe & Southbourne. Bigger too. Maybe too many surfers at Highcliffe & too off shore at Avon so thinking Milford then Southbourne.

Btw, they were sailing the Bench on Sunday so ban must've been lifted
