June – Passage Race to Yarmouth

Well this one did not go to plan. The weather forecast looked unsuitable for the passages and not many yachts were planning to join in anyway. There were also two guests yachts who had expressed an interest in the weekend. Anyway, the uncertainty with the weather resulted in just Calypso still being interested. So we went to Yarmouth for the weekend on our own. The actual weather was OK on the day but it did involve a few hours of motoring on the Sunday. However, the trip was good and crew social in the Royal Solent Yacht Club was very good. Memorable was the very light air spinnaker sailing amongst a number of French Sun Fast 3200s in the Western Solent.
