It’s a blustery start to the day, with wind from the West. We’re rafted among four large modern boats. We’re all waiting for the ebb tide to finish, to smooth out the Solent a little. Then we’re off in quick succession. We’re in relaxed mode, with just the staysail flying. It’s a little rolly without the mainsail, but we still make good time. A couple of other gaffers pass us, pushing a bit harder.
Then we’re packing up and into ‘The Ferry’ for lunch. We’ve had a great few days.
