The notorious Portland Race off the end of the Bill looks innocent and completely harmless at slack water. We then had a slow and rather frustrating sail across Lyme Bay. The forecast led us to believe we would have a brisk Northerly wind, but the wind was neither brisk nor Northerly. We were also told we would have plenty of rain; this part of the forecast proved to be entirely correct.
The afternoon was brightened up by seeing several dolphins, and also the square rigged barque the Europa on her way to France. Below is our view and a Wikimedia version.
The only way to unwind after a difficult and stressful arrival in port is with a tin of beer, of which thankfully we have a small supply aboard.
