Yesterday's AIS track for the Gotchiboat.

By all accounts a cracking day, still water and clear skies!

Grimalkin & Blown Away arrived Portland @ 13:00, sea was smooth all the way until we neared Portland with a small amount of chop.

Good to meet everyone again, Mell & Martin really 'went the extra mile' to help run people & their gear around, taking everyone on the island walk and then fed us with a great BBQ . Thanks guys.

Interesting story after I was giving history lessons when we were at the Ecrehous reef about how they were used by smugglers etc for various illegal activities in "temps passe":

It was a superb long weekend, we really appreciated the effort everyone put into the less than perfect conditions on Friday but look now with envious eyes at the clam sea!
