Locked out this afternoon not really expecting to get much of a sail. Banjo sniffed out a little band of inshore breeze that carried us nicely up channel a bit.

Banjo sniffed another little breeze that brought us nicely home again.Quite a satisfying afternoon for us ,we could see yachts either becalmed or motoring all over the place but the narrow banmd of inshore breeze served us well.

We came up from Porlock with Allan this morning. Lovely Breeze from there to Nash point, and then tacking all the way up past Barry to Lavernock. I put the engine on then, as it was dying off about 16:00 and I needed to put some life back in the Batteries.

We were quite surprised to see some people saying there was no wind.

Sounds like you had an enjoyable sail back.

Cause for a minor celebration. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
