    We were debating the cruisinmg chute outside Cherbourg on the way back but opted for a full English first by the time we had finished mopping our plates it was a bit breezy so had to settle for 6 to 8. something knots under plain sail. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Interesting report and pictures .I hadnt realized it was your first crossing as skipper.

    I hope Nigel appreciated our long charge across on a broad reach purely to take some pics of Lady in Red . [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Ta ..

    yup - the longest trip I've skippered - and only my second time across the channel - it isn't any different to local sailing with the exception that it takes a darn sight longer and you can't just turn into the nearest port when you've had enough ...

    Just after you crossed us, we turned down wind and goose winged to Poole. I was surprised that I didn't rock & roll, in fact it was more comfortable than the corkscrew with the wind on the quarter!

    If anyone didn't see them, Grahams pics are on Becky's Post. It is nice to have some pics that aren't of a boat on flat calm water or tied up to a pontoon. Once again, thanks Graham
