Solent Sailing

I'd say there was more eye candy on the boats I was with last weekend - sailing from Portsmouth to Poole and back via Yarmouth - but no doubt that would get me into terrible trouble.

A fun easter sail even if the sun kept itself hidden away. And that broach wasn't strictly on the plan (it was really only a mini-broach). But there were nice force 3-5s from behind both ways with a good run with the spinnaker up along the Needles channel, and great company.

Slight feeling of regret at not joining those racing the Red Funnel weekend (sorry I wasn't there to help, Anna) - especially on finding out my old boat came, alas, last in its class. Clearly in need of its old watch leader / navigator!
