We spent last night anchored on the East side of Dungeness: not a very peaceful anchorage but a useful place to wait for a fair tide or a reasonable wind when going down channel.
We lifted the anchor at 4 am by the light of a full moon and had a brisk sail with a northerly wind to Brighton. Still very cold (nearly May!) but we are now warming up in more hospitable surroundings while waiting for crew reinforcements - Ant Bennett - and drying the boat out a bit.
We will go for a drink with him when he arrives...
