A Gentle Cruise back to the solent

After our experience getting in to Poole we waited a couple of days for some strong winds to pass and then eventually set sail for the Solent on October 8th. We were originally aiming for the Folly but did so well with the tide we went all the way back to Quayside, our home Marina and tied up. Journey complete !

Got some lovely pictures of Talia gently ghosting along in light winds with the cruising chute up. (Only the second time we had used it on the entire journey!) A very nice gentle way to end the trip... until of course the Mobo wash started hitting us in the Solent but don't get me started !

Very nice Prout 33 set-up. I'd love to see more pics of the rig/setup. How does she move to weather? What are your pros and cons about the Prout 33??
