There was no wind yesterday, so we were all ferried ashore in the smallest dinghy available, before walking along the Cowes Esplanade. Then back to the boats for a quiet afternoon, before reconvening on board to enjoy a feast from ‘East Breeze’. Last night’s lightening show was distant over the mainland.
This morning we left in convoy, before splitting at the harbour entrance for Beaulieu and Hamble. Light winds resulted in motoring the whole way home. Bank holiday motor boats were out in large numbers, resulting in more bouncing about and noise than anyone would choose.
