Great pictures. We were hoping to be there but the weather forecast looked dodgy so decided not to go - sorry Alan! It does look like it was bumpy out there and Richard wouldn't have been good company as he spent yesterday moping around, complaining about his cold! Will try again in 4 years' time!!

It certainly was! More to do with the wakes from all the boats following the yachts than the usual solent slop. We didn't follow past Cowes, as the wind would have meant banging into head on chop all the way to the needles. On the way back to Portsmouth it was a lot smoother.

You've been hanging out with hardboaters too much!

I believe Isle of Sark made good going in the first stretch!?

A small Island very close to my heart!! Probably far too many beers there is the main reason!!

A lovely Island and well worth the visit if anyone is trotting around the Channel Islands.

Great photos Thorper. Those things look ageless and timeless ...if it wasn't for the RIBs in the photos...
