Well I did something I don't normally do. I went a long way on my own. Guess i'd spent enough on a decent boat to have at least as much confidence in it as I would my car. So did a 65 NM round trip from Warsash down to the Needles, then crossed straight over to Poole which was reasonably rough. After refreshments at the Jolly sailor returned to Warsash running along the coast. A splendid day out. Beats the office anyway.

Only downside is that I managed to lose my antenna between taking the shot below and Poole. And as I've found previously its the devils own job to get an antenna on its own.

Below is a snap from Alum Bay.

Didn't mean totally on my own but only the one boat.

And last post on this day out.

We watched Abromoviches little boat, Ecstasea, being brought in to the harbour. Poor thing was parked next to the scrap metal place opposite the Town Quay.

It was reversed in to the harbour and took ages.
