Brighton Departure (2) - This time with a fair wind!
Early start to get tide and wind today - cleared Marina Village at 5.56am. Beautiful day, but still require 6 layers of clothing! Perfect 15 knot wind from from the North West.
Good progress to Selsey Bill - then into The Solent. Just off Bognor Regis with local trawlers::
