Scilly 2010 :: Weather or not?

337 0

So, some early forecasts for the weekend weather are in and it’s looking bright if a little breezy on the Sunday. Westerly 12-15mph on Friday meaning a tailwind for the veteran races and the same again on Saturday will make for some fast times for the St Agnes racing. If the westerly holds it’ll make for a interesting side on cross-chop for the first round of Nut Rock sprints on Saturday afternoon.

A bit of rain and mist overnight Saturday/Sunday then a fresh Northerly airstream takes hold with rising pressure and temperatures dropping down. Expect 20-25+ mph, and again a strong tailwind for those crews that can remain calm under pressure and keep their work rate high enough – reminiscent of last year’s finals where the calm waters of the start zone were very different to the choppy and confused finish line.

The weather will play a part in levelling things up between heavyweight/lightweight crews and it looks set for some excellent and challenging conditions. A true test. Can’t wait!
