We motor out to lighter wind than expected. A long fetch takes us across the ebb tide to just short of Ryde. There we tack and head gently downwind back towards Cowes.
Then it’s over the ebb tide, past the floating bridge and up to the Folly Inn, where we end up moored across the pontoon from ‘Step Back In Time’, ‘Satellite’ and ‘East Breeze’, who we have arranged to meet for supper. ‘Satellite’ has brought the food, we’ve brought the dining room! A good time is had by all, until a major lightning display sends everyone home before the heavens open.
