As well as good sailing, an excellent number of social gatherings also took place. A full range of weather, from thunderstorms to blue sky was experienced. The sail through the moorings at Itchenor was a little close at times, as was the anchoring space off East Head on a sunny Bank Holiday Monday !
With the weather not always being sunny, I did find the opportunity to try out the tarp I'd bought. Although various designs of tent are available, non are cheap and many do not let in much light. A transparent tarp from Bradshaws provided a simple solution, that provided more space and didn't darken the cabin.
