Predictably, the channel we have just crossed was absolutely millpondish all the way. Hardly a ripple, and as we are pootling into Portsmouth as I write, the water is like a mirror. Why oh why did he trust the forecast?!
We could have gone all the way at 45knts+
. Oh and this "high speed" ferry blew up an engine half way along so we spent an hour at 6knts until the "broken engine became fixed"
. So we are an hour and a half late, going to be a rush to the chippy to get there in time!!
Anyway, we will re-attempt at the end of the month!
