Chione ‘dressed overall’ for the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla on Sat 6 May. Martin and I spent the day onboard and watched the Coronation, while it rained outside. By the afternoon the weather had cleared and there was lovely early summer sunshine.
On Sun 7 May we sailed over to Jennycliff Bay, tacked and then headed into Cawsand Bay. Very light winds and warm sunshine made a pleasant day’s sail. During the afternoon, while becalmed, we caught the first mackerel of the year! As it was only small, it was let go.
