Pooh sticks at the Needles ...

After a reasonable start, we made a wise choice of the no. 2 spinnaker which, though the wind was light, enabled us to point higher than many other. We found ourselves third in the fleet at Yarmouth, but were seriously headed and lost a few places getting the spinny down.

As we cleared Hurst narrows, the wind died and we're currently totally becalmed, gently pirouetting towards our destination! If this carries on, we'll be kedging in Lyme Bay....
