Littlehampton Rally Re-Run 15th August 2015

Littlehampton

Saturday 15th August 2015 -  ‘Didn’t we have a lovely time the day we went to Littlehampton’

Oxygen’s crew arrived late Friday evening so after a boat cooked curry we all retired to bed.

The lines were slipped from Southampton Town Quay at 07.30 hours. We motored down Southampton Water, by the time we reached the Solent the skipper decided to hoist the spinnaker, we sailed until we neared the Looe Channel then the winds were too light to maintain a satisfactory speed to the passage plan and entrance to Littlehampton so Oxygen motored around Selsey Bill and the lobster pots. Windhover was spotted in the distance.

We soon arrived at Littlehampton and met up with the other boats, Windhover, Ronhilda, Kioni and Mary Lunn.
