Charity Weekend–Character Building

The Charity weekend in aid of Knoticat with some of the Caribbean 600 team on board turned into a character building return leg after the oil warning sounded on the way to Cowes.
Picture is of Sea Start who helped us off the berth at E. Cowes and past the Chain Ferry slipping the tow before we sailed back to Lymington with F7 ,gusting over 40 at times, against the start of the Ebb.

Despite Tacking we covered the distance in under 2 hours and sailed on to the Dan Bran Pontoon before Lymington Yacht Haven helped us alongside.

The sea state was a bit Gnarly at times and when deciding to make the trip the strength of the crew was an important factor. For budding YachtMasters, such as are booked on some of our Milebuilder trips, a quick review of factors to consider when considering a trip may be found on mcanet.mcga.gov.uk/public/c4/solas/solas_v/Annexes/Annex24.htm
