We arrive at the boatyard in torrential rain, as expected. By the time we’ve loaded everything on board and had some lunch, it’s almost stopped and the wind has largely gone with it. We decide to motor across.
We follow ‘High Barbaree’ up the river and join the growing fleet on the Folly Inn pontoon, rafted alongside ‘Arriana’. By the time we’re packed away it’s time to get the taxi back up to Cowes for a drinks reception at the Classic Boat Museum. Then back to the boats and supper aboard ‘Jan Mayen’.
