Into the Washing Machine!

or that's how it seemed at the time!

On a Sunday evening in early October I was considering a trip to Portishead with Wye Invader Two, I watched the 10pm BBC Weather for the coming week, a small high pressure was forecast for Wednesday the 3rd, Thursday 4th and Friday 5th October, an online check gave me the wind speed at a gentle breeze of 5 to 10 Knots, Andy who helps out as crew and looks after any filming was not available at a short notice so a trip out on Wye Invader Two was down to me alone.

Autumn on the Sharpness Canal

Short run out from Sharpness to Saul Junction to top up fuel, weather outwards was a bit windy and a little on the cold side, the run back in the Autumn sunshine was spectacular with the leaves turning golden brown. Highlight of the day was the guy in Saul Junction Marina who shouted "I've seen you on the Internet" - Good to know someone actually reads this website!

The first of what I think was probably an Autumn Gale, well that’s what it felt like!

The plan:

Sharpness Marina > Gloucester >Tewkesbury then return to Gloucester on Saturday, and back to Sharpness on Sunday.

Weather Outlook:

Sunshine and the occasional shower and wind gusts between 20 and 30 miles per hour in the River Severn Estuary.
