Forecast for Guernsey looked horrendous with a Gale 8 coming in from the West but thought we'd better see
if any of our series rivals were on the start line. Bit of a scare when we saw Alchemist on the Island Sailing
Club pontoon when we motored over to Cowes but they did not appear on the start line. Only two other
Class 5 boats started with Xara and Xarifa heading off down the Solent but they retired later. We retired
about 50 years over the start line and headed back to Cowes for a curry and a few pints which seemed a
much better prospect than what awaited any boat venturing out into the channel.
