A day’s sail in the Solent – 27 May 18

After a wet and thundery start Sunday turned out to be a glorious day for sailing with light SE winds.  There were not many other yachts about, maybe due to the wet start.

Conditions were ideal for Chione T and with the wind 60 degrees off the port bow she tramped along happily between 5 – 6 knots.  The shallow bay to the West of Ryde Pier looked inviting, but the sailing was too good to stop and lunch was had underway.
