Weymouth to Brixham

The day started with a great downwind sail in a light breeze and ended with no wind and motoring nearly 2 hours into Brixham. Some highlights were:

Using the wind vane steering downwind, rigging a preventer, using the whisker pole and sailing wing to wing.

Meeting a pod of common dolphins.

And some things I did not photograph, such as getting caught in the Portland Race tidal flow and having to motor out, and running out of wind and having to motor the last two hours.

No wind again today so a day at anchor in Brixham chilling, blogging, fixing a few things, the best bit is for the first time this year I only have a pair of shorts on because it is warm and sunny.
