Just back from our spring break cruise. 048/" target="_blank">Spring Break 2010 Sailing

Basically, we were pinned by some weather, but a week ago we did a 3 a.m. start and sailed across the Solent and across to Poole (for two nights anchored behind Brownsea Island), followed by a sail back to Lymington for a night, and then two more nights at the Newtown River before sailing back to Gosport:

On our sail from Poole to Lymington, we had the best sail of the trip. 8749-1/P4080130.JPG" border="0">

We took the inside channel route out of Poole Harbor, and we cleared with only a meter of water under the keel.
