Sailing in the Solent …what a joy! It’s been quite a while. I have done 2 Fastnets and one Caribbean 600 and many late nights on watch. Seadog.
There is a marvellous sense of being in touch with primal nature – others call it the weather but also sea wind and oneself.
We were sailing along the Solent with an overnight stay on the Isle of Wight.

There is a marvellous mystery to the sea which creates a sense of comradeship among mariners when we meet. It also creates a sense of a bond when one imagines mariners of old doing mind bendingly courageous (dangerous) expeditions. There is a wonderful sense of straightforwardness…. The sea does not lie, you were not listening!
