Stuck in the doldrums

England and most of northern Europe appears to be stuck in an anti-cyclone. No wind on the horizon other than marginal Easterlies which mean that any seabreeze here in Weymouth will just cancel out the easterly. Maybe a bit will come at the weekend, but again wind from the east usually means fun jumping and less distance due to a lot more hard work.

I went today and managed about 3nm tacking out from the sandbank in the low spring tide and gybing back downwind when I proved to myself there was not enough to get planing. One good thing was I went out in my short arm summer suit and did not fell particularly cold at all, granted the sun was out and I barely got wet, only up to my waist due to a long fin while walking out.
