Bills Short' cast for the Christmas Winds!



Bill Short has made his prediction for the Winds over the Christmas period!
If you do sail Shoreham on Sunday Morning we are here until 1pm with seasonal beverages (food and Mulled wine..) ! :) 

Xmas windsurfing?

I keep checking on the weather detail but it does change, due to a slightly complex chart.

For those of us on the south coast we are close to the high pressure that sits over mainland Europe. This makes the wind strengths we actually get a bit unpredictable. The Met Office have less wind than GFS-based sites like windguru etc.

My reading for Hove is that we have a marginal SW wind on Xmas Eve, and then the wind is stronger on Xmas Day and probably for Boxing Day but with a SSW (or quite southerly) wind direction.

We also have low water at breakfast time here in the Southeast, so that suggests an early or at least a morning sail – which also suits those with a Xmas lunch to eat.

So Xmas Eve may produce wind enough for say Worthing in the afternoon, and Xmas Day should work for somewhere like Shoreham in the morning – or sail Hove early.

The Boxing Day forecast keeps changing in detail, at this stage. There's also some heavy rain possible.

After this weather system passes, the wind could go more NW for the following days, also bringing in colder air and dropping the temperatures below 10 degrees again. So it may be too cold to sail as we go into the New Year.
