Beautiful afternoon with little motoring (except the last bit to get home) and another first as this was the furthest I'd poked my nose out into the Solent all summer as I rounded well after the Eastoke mark before turning for home..
I think I'm ready for my first big trip now, and to get more prepared I've even started shopping around for GPS equipment . I strongly suspect that it's not going to happen until next year (simply not enough time left this year) but it's something to look forward to over the winter... the first trip I'd like to do is to the Nab Tower [click here] (pictured right), for no other reason originally than that I've always fancied seeing it (!), but I now understand that there is a second reason, as it also has a military heritage... more on that when I get there (and more importantly get back!)
Distance: 10 miles (125 miles year to date)
Wind: Force 3 occasionally gusting force 4.
