We had a solphire exercise today in the mid and western Solent.
For about 30 mins our small yankee boat had some assistance in his search with the dolphin, at times, in touching distance.
Whilst retrieving the yankee, the dolphin spent most of this exercise alongside the Lifeboat.
There have been several dolphins, and seals in the Solent for many years now.
This one is paticularly friendly but, do not be to bold, it is wild and can give a nasty bite, even though it may only be a friendly gesture.
Also, let it live its life without to much interference.
