First outing of the year.

Can’t claim it is the first sail, I’ve only had the mizzen working. It’s really very windy. I motored over to Brownsea Island to get some shelter. Raised the main and jib at anchor to get the inevitable tangles sorted out. Then motored round to Furzey Island where I am staying for the night due to being firmly aground. It’s a very low tide. Fabulous bird life around. Mergansers, red throated divers, great crested grebes and all the more usual ones. Not another boat around, but tomorrow is forecast to be the hottest day since last August. Hope its true. I can start working on my tan. Cooked dahl for dinner, which was surprisingly easy. Cold night ahead.
