Oh, I'm keeping an eye on the weather. Even have the local forecast at Willy Weather as the second-most most frequented site in my browser at the moment. As you say, tomorrow's weather might be better... even if the weather man says it's not.
Aside from the gale winds warning, the wind is looking a little dicey over the next couple of days. The Maricat isn't rigged for high winds (we'll be raking the mast back more when my eldest gets the hang of things) and I'll be honest about my skills in the Corsair not being up to solo-handling gusts adding ten knots to existing predictions of wind speed. I'm just not there yet.
For what it is worth, I'm not giving up on time with the boys around the water or around the boats. We've been rugging them up and taking them walking along the lake and along the beach. The boys explored one of the tiny lake islands they've put a bridge too yesterday (quite the adventure for the younger three), and they were collecting shells & dodging waves on the beach on Sunday.
Being who I am, it takes alot more than adverse weather to stop me taking the boys out to the water.
On the other hand, being who I am means I won't be taking the boys out in weather I cannot handle when there is no rescue boat out given the official sailing season being over. Another year on the water and I'd probably have the self-confidence (and perhaps a larger boat) to take the boys out in such conditions as are predicted.
OK, now I really sound like a whinger!
