We are sailing

Just home from a couple of days' sailing with my Dad and godfather. We had a really relaxing time sailing the Mayfly, a little 32-footer belonging to my godfather, from Chichester across the Solent to the Isle of Wight (to Bembridge on the eastern end) for the night and then back again. The Crab & Lobster Inn at the top of the cliffs just south of the harbour is strongly recommended for a bite to eat and a nice pint!

The genoa filling under a light breeze; the mainsail hadn't been hoisted yet.

The wind never exceeded 12 knots, and our best speed all trip was around 4 knots under sail on a run heading back north, so the journey took a few hours each way to go not all that far, but it was very enjoyable. And now I'm ready for a few days' "proper" holiday starting in the morning. See you when I get back!

A well-earned cake break for me
