Unusually, I had the pleasure of company in the guise of the Chair of the Association, over from Ireland without boat. We sailed downstream for a planned lunchtime anchorage off East Head before my crew jumped ship to join the ex-Chair in his boat.
I beat a passage upstream as far as Del Quay before retiring to the marina.
|Saturday track: 15.7nm|
Today's trip involved a trip up the Thorney Channel aiming, amongst other things, to catch a glimpse of seals. In the event, we saw one, although of these wonderful creatures are such a common sight in my usual sailing areas, I wasn't disappointed. Again, I had company for the trip to Thorney and back.

Freshening winds were forecast today so, with the rally now officially ended, I departed early aiming to take in the western wing of the harbour - the Emsworth Channel.
