Yacht Sailing in Company, Yarmouth to Cherbourg

Having just returned yesterday from our CCRC X Channel “dash and back” I have just have time first to post a quickie picture from the “cruise” this past few days. Suffice to say for the moment is that all those on board the two yachts had a really good time. The attached picture shows how cruising in company is done CCRC style. For the entire 60-70 sea miles from Yarmouth to Cherbourg the two club yachts never lost sight of each other. Somewhat by accident we were briefly at one point only about 4 metres apart! I can also add it is quite exciting sailing on small yachts making 6.5kts on a Reach, being solo on watch and night.
