trip logs

Afternoon trip to Church Bay

A change of crew and another trip out of the harbour. This time we set off with myself, Niki, Caroline and Alice aboard.

The wind had, as forecast, increased to a F4 and swung round S of SW, in advance of the Southerly F8 forecast overnight.

From the mouth of the harbour we took a nice 3 sail training run NE towards Church Bay. Aurora made excellent speed, the GPS peaking at over 6kts!

No time to stay, we then turned and beat back to the marina on main and stay sail. 8.3nm 2hrs 30min 3.4kts avg speed, 7kts max
