A great day’s sail – 7 Sep 19

Had a great day sailing to the entrance of the Beaulieu River and back to Whale Island.  The forecast Northerly was more NNW, but with a smooth sea and not too many other yachts out, I managed to get to Beaulieu in one starboard tack from Gillkicker Point.  Just off Cowes the gaff ketch ‘Queen Galadriel’, owned by the Cirdan Trust, passed by heading East. By the time I turned for home the tide was flooding and the trip from Beaulieu entrance to Portsmouth Harbour entrance was completed in just an hour.  Great Sailing and Chione going well.
