    I think this is meant to be a contest thread not a report thread.

    Will enter with Sherkin 91 knots.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,775 ✭✭✭ up for anything

    Johnstown Castle 95kts


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,951 ✭✭✭ munsterlegend

    Sherkin Island 99 knots :eek:


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,544 ✭✭✭ Samaris


    Roches Point or Johnstown Castle for me..I'll say Johnstown castle - 103kts.


  • Registered Users Posts: 659 ✭✭✭ wazzoraybelle


    Kinsale Energy recorded 96kts in Feb 2014. I reckon it'll hit 100kts this time. I'm only 25 miles from the platform, nailing everything down at the moment!!

    Roches Point has some shelter to the south, betting on 82kts


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 240 ✭✭ fraxinus1


    Sherkin island 69 knots


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,185 ✭✭✭✭ M.T. Cranium


    I don't think the OP meant to include Kinsale energy but only stations on land ... but I expect them to either report 105 knot gusts or stop reporting. Holding my land guess at 91 knots Sherkin Island.

    Cork airport 88kt.

    Cork Airport 90 knots


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,617 ✭✭✭ Rougies


    How will this be scored? Something like 5 points for the correct station and a max of 10 points for the correct speed, minus 1 point for every knot off?

    And what's the prize for the winner? :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 166 ✭✭ bill66


    Malin Head 98


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,554 ✭✭✭✭ Rikand


    My old friend Johnstown Castle is a popular pick for a change

    Johnstown Castle 101 knots

    If Casement see 107 kts, there wont be a boards.ie left to announce the winner.

    Recent runs give me more confidence in my Roches Point @ 100 kts
