We raised anchor at 08:30 and set off for Dungeness. We motored in flat calm to start with but as we rounded the not very picturesque power station at lunchtime there was a bit more wind and we managed to grab an extra 1.5 knots by getting the main and staysail up.With the sails set, it was full on Bacon butties for lunch - our first meal underway and very civilised it was too.
Beachey Head was a nice sight and the cliffs looked much nicer here than at Dover - but maybe it was just the weather being somewhat different.
The local lifeboat was out having a play - some exercises with the Navy as far as we could work out from the VHF. It made for some good photos though.
