Default English Channel: Sailing conditions in November?

Hi all,
In mid November I plan to sail first time English Channel (Hamble - Channel Islands). Please advise on sailing conditions this time of the year.
What are weather statistics for November? How many bad days on average to expect? (Can't find this on Internet)

Thanks!
Dmitri

Hi Dimitri,
I have no knowledge of the Channel conditions and, surprisingly there is little in Cornell's WCR covering that body of water. The Admiralty publication Ocean Passages of the World may provide more detail and here is a link which gives some general information which may be of use. Sailing in the UK
Hope you find the information you need and that ultimately you have a good crossing.

Dmitr,

In November you can expect some settled, cold weather if there is a high pressure but you can also get strong winds if a low pressure comes in from the Atlantic. Be prepared to wait for the right conditions.
Remember that the CI's have very strong tides and these running against the wind will make the sea very uncomfatable!
Have a good trip.

Thanks for your advice! In case of a storm I will instead travel along the cost in Solent area.
