Beaulieu to Weymouth

With a later start time today, we left the river at about 08:00 and pushed the tide a little as we had to get the whole tidal push west if we were to get to Weymouth without too much engine. Once we cleared the Needles Channel we turned off the engine and sailed almost right into the harbour. We only had to tack twice. Once to clear Saint Albans Headland and then to clear the Lulworth Firing range (the army practice shooting targets at sea here).

Now tied up in Weymouth, and just about to research the 'inner route' round Portland Bill. This is sometimes called the coastal sailors Cape Horn!! as Portland sticks right out into the English Channel and is very shallow. In the wrong conditions it can be a very dangerous place. The inshore route saves about 15-20 miles so worth a go!
