15 July 2012 | Braye Harbour
WNW 15kt, fine, 1012mb rising
Sunset enjoyed a fast cross Channel passage from the Solent; with the wind steady at WNW 15kt, reefed main and full genoa and sheets nicely eased, we flew across the seas at 8 knots.
Shipping Lanes were as busy as ever; including a long tow that we had to avoid; the tug master made sure there was no doubting his business by lighting up the tug and huge barge like a Christmas Tree!
A lively sail; now very happy to be in the lee of Braye Harbour's splendid breakwater - probably until Wednesday.
