Happy Valentines! Lock closure for 2020 is now complete having been slightly delayed by the weather and a couple of minor issues. Storm Ciara is to be followed by Dennis the Menace this weekend. The wind direction is forecast South West peaking at around 50mph so probably not as strong as last weekend. Never the less the guys have been round the marina to check all the boats and to make sure they have properly and safely tied up. The duty lockmasters will of course monitor the situation over the weekend. Today’s picture is from the tidal surge on Monday morning which peaked at around 0.97 above prediction.
