Day 1 of the Portsmouth – Oban PMMC
Posted in : Hummingbird
Cracking start on the good ship Hummingbird as our new crew bedded in and helped ready our trusty yacht for the journey ahead to Oban.
With planning aplenty on the first day, Saturday morning had us working on the boat ahead of slipping and setting off on a brief shake down sail across to Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
As it transpires it was lucky that we obtained a berth on the hammerhead considering the huge number of regattas that apparently are taking place this weekend.
Nicky and Stephen gave us a cracking dinner and the crew as a whole are now exploring the delights of Cowes by night as we wind down after a very busy day.
More sailing and planning tomorrow as the wind looks brisk and we start to look ahead to our channel crossing on Tuesday. Exciting times ahead once more…….
