|Lapwing on route to Yarmouth|
The wind was unhelpfully from the North East and ranging from F2 to F1 so had to make big tacks (100 -120 degrees on port & 005 - 025 on starboard) with occasional motoring.
Yarmouth was really busy with it being a Bank holiday weekend. We were both rafted out but not together.. Paul was four boat out and I was five boats out. Despite paying for a walk ashore it was easier to inflate the tender and punt between the two boats.

The wind really helped today, much more consistent and nicely on the rear quarter.
|Getting blown home|
The next trip was not until the end of June, I went for a weekend to Weymouth with John as crew. The high tide at Poole was around midday, which gave us time to help Bede drop his mast and re-step it on the mooring so he could sort out his jamming jib furler. The weather was, once again, unhelpful. A F4/5 SW on the Saturday made us take the outer route around St Aldhelm. It was a bit torturous and we eventually got into Weymouth around 9pm.
