Blow the wind southerly...please

The thing about this sailing malarkey is that it all depends on the weather, but particularly the wind.
It is now only three days until we set sail to Harwich and then across the North Sea to Holland.
The trouble is that we will need to travel in a North Easterly direction and the weather forecast is predicting strong North Easterly winds over the weekend. Boats and their crews tend to like the wind to come from behind them and don't tend to relish going straight into strong winds.
Never mind, I'm sure beer whisky or cocoa will help to maintain morale but as for the boat she will just have to lump it!
There were a couple of boats out on the Swale today having a peaceful sail. Let's hope that's an omen.
