Looks like the weather is calming down nicely for Sunday.
Wind is down around the F3 variable direction.
Although swell report is nasty 17 foot plus.

So that limits options ; estuary or Galway Bay.

Any suggestions ???? and I don't mean suicidal suggestions !!!!!

Itching for a new boat Conor because that's one sure way of destroying the one you have :lol:
I feckin hate Mutton !
I hate the whole area around Mutton.
It's like whistling past a graveyard !
Also the thought of kayaking in that area in a 17 foot swell doesn't fill me with joy.

Mind you I'd be happy to watch from the safety of land in my deck chair with a nice hot whiskey.
Loads of potential for carnage ! Great entertainment :D plus I get to use my marine monocular to observe from a safe distance !!

Plastic and you have no excuses either now that you own a delpin. If winds are slack as expected, reefs and waves are easily spotted and you can work in and around these to get a feel for being in a big sea (and you will be). Scraping up against Seal Rock is optional....

Look, easy peasy - https://vimeo.com/107538925

Besides, Emma has not broken any bones in a while and might join us...

Magicseaweed are prone to exaggeration, according to Windguru it will only be 14 foot on Sunday.
