Rob Hudson, crew 4th leg. Docked in Portishead getting ready to go to Bristol tomorrow.
Well, we arrived at Portishead last night after flying up the last bit of the Bristol Channel after the tide turned at Barry.
Northabout had the bit between her teeth, and we surged along at 10/11kts – into Portishead.
As we entered the lock first leg skipper, Dave, was there to greet us together with another Thornbury Sailing Club member, Nigel. Andrew from Cardiff Bay YC sailed across to join us for a drink or two – our micropoet Twitter follower – great to meet you at last!
We will get to Bristol tomorrow morning – DETAILS WILL BE ON THE FRONT PAGE OF THIS WEBSITE (for the benefit of my various family and friends who fancy turning up.
