Carl, Nic and Ben go to Portsmouth

So a slow start, and even slower winds on Saturday meant we went with the wind and headed for Portsmouth. At one point with cruising chute amateurishly and incorrectly deployed the winds did pick up and Ben was nearly lifted of the deck when trying to help me keep the tack on the boat !

We got it all in back in the sock in the end but I was contemplating the knife to cut things free.

Much stronger winds on Sunday saw us whizzing back at over 8 knots a one point.
