well, wind direction, actually. My friend and I are travelling from the Normandy beaches to Minden in North Germany. We'll be skirting the coast up to Zeeland, and then going pretty well due west. It's going to be late may early June next year. Where will the prevailing winds coming from? I'm guessing they'll be westerly, though my friend says they'll be cominfrom the north off the North Sea, which, thinking aout it, seems very possible.
