Did anyone find there speed much reduced on the final leg up the West Solent ? Usual speed against revs seemed at least 6 knots + slower than what I would expect. I wasn't falling behind anyone and in fact was catching up until I found more wood so it seems we might have all been suffering from something.

Maybe the tide racing out was taking a good few knots off us. When Hightower and I landed we had real trouble coming alongside as the tide was racing out and pushing us away from the pontoon.

Maxed out at 35 knotts though Hurst and went upto 37 a little further down, then did a high speed run in opposite direction and did 40 knotts, there was quite a tide run as we both found out on the pontoon

Biggles you were probably slowing down as the salt water in your gearbox took hold
