So no. I didn't go out today.

I was out Saturday luchtime / afternoon. Went to Cowes and back from the Itchen. Beautifully calm. Cruising at 41mph could have gone faster but didn't want to drink the fuel for a few extra mph.

I saw a Zapcat coming out of the Itchen as I was going back in - was that you benc?
