Sorry David, I did not log on this morning to see your reply.
We launched at Christchurch as planned at 11, briefly met Blackroady (pete) just outside the Run. He was just returning from an early trip over to Poole.
We then made straight for the Needles and around the coast to Ventnor. Had another great meal at the Spyglass and as we left, met David walking along the Prom.
As the weather and sea state were so very good, we then continued around the Island, my crew's first circumnavigation in one go. Got back to Christchurch just before 3.
68miles and 50 ltrs of fuel, average speed (excluding the stop) 28kts.
One very enjoyable day. Will try and add a couple of vid's of the South of the Island later
