After the big deliveries to and from Canaries and Azores, how about a relaxing sail up the coast to Eastbourne?  Outline plan is:

  • Friday evening meet on board and buy provisions for the weekend.
  • Saturday - probably an early start as HW Eastbourne is 10:40 UT+1 and it would be good to make as much progress as possible with or at slack tide.  So we should arrive in Eastbourne Sovereign marina with plenty of time for pre-dinner nibbles and drinks.  We'll probably eat at the yacht club unless anybody knows a good local hostelry?  Beware the locals at the YC to whom we owe a bottle of port...
  • Sunday - depends a bit on the lock opening hours at Brighton, but with luck a sail back in 4 hours or so and an early finish

Other suggestions also welcome and depends on the weather of course!
