As we made our way to Stokes Hill Wharf, there were many storm clouds in the background and we needed to reef the sails.
We got off to an excellent start, with Marjani over the start line by a mere fraction ahead of Emma Ward.
All going very well, until the wind stopped.
Emma Ward didn’t make it around the third buoy. Waiting, waiting, waiting for that non existent wind.
After a few frustrating hours of going backwards, we decided the only decent thing to do was to cook up a feed, as we couldn’t get back into the lock until 1730 ish anyway.
