Ferry dodging

After a ghastly Bank Holiday Monday, Tuesday dawned bright, clear and breezy. Returning to the boat to find a leak in the anchor well drains had wet the bedding and cushions in the forepeak. After some tidying up, Trevor and I set out in a SSW F4, and quickly put a reef in the main, as the breeze freshened. We enjoyed a fast reach on the reefed main and staysail around the harbour, as the wind increased to F5/6. The only other boats on the move were the fast-moving Irish ferries, so we had the water otherwise to ourselves. A satisfying beat back
Into the marina completed our return for lunch. 10.4nm, 2hr 30 mins, 4.1kt , 6.5kt max.
