19th March: to Netley (~10nm)

Started at 1115. Raised mast beyond Northam Bridge and sailed under jib and mizzen raising main off Shamrock; beat down river, turned left at Weston Jetty and got level with Netley Dome before deciding to turn back due to tide. Was reaching at 5 to 6 kts (over ground). Fairly slow run up the river, sails and mast down just before bridge, Back at 1515 with about 45 minutes to spare on the tide. Forgot camera so no photos!
