Day 76 Dorset bound and the Portland Race 18/08/16

It was to be an 0500 start from Plymouth. 89 miles across Lyme bay, the Portland Race and on into Dorset home waters. The day began with light winds so we had to use the assistance of the newly fixed engine as well as full sails.

We made good progress but 89 miles in a 28ft boat still takes time. 18 hours to be exact. We arrived at Weymouth town quay just in time for a quick pint before getting a few hours sleep. To catch the tide and keep clear of the impending storm that is brewing, we had to be up at 0330 and off for 0400.
