After a top top bike ride from our great overnight spot near Hurst Castle around the lovely Lymington area :) we heat over to the 'Secret Spot' and this time the wind was in better direction sw and abit stronger. I rigged 7.8 and took out the Xantos, it was abit light to start with but the breeze filled in and I took on the beat up to Lymington in search of some flat water, I had to coross the narrow harbour entrance evoiding three ferries !!! As the high was now high the area of flat water had chopped up a little and the wind was at it's lightest close in. I then set off on a mega broad reach back, I took a small detour first heading over to the Isle of Wight before heading back to Mag. It was an interested crossing og the Solent as I had to sail astern a large private yacht in the style of the Britannia !!! I was then faced with 20 + large racing yachts heading down the Solent, decided to sail behind the leading boat,then bear away missing the second boat by a good margin :) The wind had really filled in now but because the tide was high it had chopped up :( A couple of windsurfers and a kitesurfer had arrived to enjoy the top day but we had to back up and head to Haywards Heath to pick up anothe 133 Xantos befoer heading home - a top top few days down South :)

Friday 4th July - we are back home in Felixstowe and I go to use my lovely new uj and discover the black extension missing !!!! :( :( :( I must have left it at Tanner Lane - if anyone picked it up please email me - - thank you.
