16th March: To Hythe and met DCA (~6nm)

Raised mast straight after Northam Bridge and sailed under jib and mizzen to off Shamrock; then all sails down the river and across to Hythe. Sailed back up the Itchen, taking the sails down near Kemps (where John Green passed on his Moody. Motored to near bridge before lowering the mast. Various small boats seen coming up the river turned out to be the Dinghy Cruising Association members on their way to Gavin’s for lunch, so I walked round and met them there. Here are a few photographs to prove I went.
