Final Sail Of The Year

Today saw me return from my last sailing trip of the year before hanging up my oilies and hunkering down out of the cold for the winter. As luck would have it we couldn’t have had a better weekend for such a sail and despite the lower than preferred wind speeds we completed our overnight race to the French port of Cherbourg and returned to Gosport the following night in high spirits and with somewhat windswept and sun tanned faces!

I’ve included below a couple of choice photos I snapped when I got the chance. First up is the actual start of the race, dead centre of the picture you can just make out the starting box on the shoreline and of course the other boats in the fleet who have crossed the line or who are about to. The second is the sun drenched terrace bar in Cherbourg where the tired but satisfied race participants were conversing and enjoying a glass of Merlot (or three!)
