The new bronze gaff end has been adjusted, so it looks like we’re ready to sail. It’s a breezy motor across the Solent, with 20kts of headwind slowing things down. Once again we’re following ‘Satellite’. ‘Jolie Brise’ is out showing off outside Cowes. We’re ahead of most of the fleet, so make use of the space to get stern to in Shepards Wharf. Then it’s a relaxing afternoon, with Tim and Lyn arriving just in time for regatta drinks and BBQ.
