A Bumpy Ride

The hardy crew!
After a slightly 'sickening' journey on Saturday we were getting rather used to lumpy seas and revisiting lunch! Monday saw another force 8 and it was difficult to see those wondrous white cliffs when the waves were 20 feet high! A south westerly wind meant the wind was on the nose (again) and our passage to Eastbourne took a stomach-churning 10 hours, travelling at around 3 knots...
I spy with my little eye something beginning with W C of D. Nope... can't see them.

Yesterday we did well to sail the 22 miles from Eastbourne to Brighton. Still a force 7, with gusts of 8 but a nice sunny day and we did see some scenery this time!
