Sunday 22 July started, like many recent sails, with little wind. However, by early afternoon there was a good SW breeze and Chione T was in her element. My brother had joined me for the day and we enjoyed good sailing.
Once back in Portsmouth Harbour we managed to sail to the marina under bare poles. Some yachts I’ve owned have been less inclined to do this, so it was good to find that Chione T will and it allowed plenty of time to pack sails and get lines and fenders on before arriving alongside.
