The morning of 13th June dawnd sunny and warm with a light breeze. We had boarded the evening before, which meant a leisurely start at 10 o’clock, heading down Southampton Water. By 1050 we wer off Hook buoy, and by 1235 we were alongside at Bembridge.
On the 14th, the Walker Bay was launched, and provided good sailing within the harbour. There was good BBQ in the harbour marquee that evening. Ou album of the weekend can be seen by clicking here
The next day we opted to go over to Chichester Harbour rather than go straight home.
