Saturday Scramble

The first sunshine for weeks and weeks brought about a mass boating exodus on Saturday morning, sitting down at Hamble Point it appeared that half the boats on the river were all trying to get out of the river at the same time.

Needless to say there was impatience, boats overtaking in their rush to get out in the open Solent and enjoy the day, kicking up lots of wash, one of the worst aspects of sailing here - the Hamble Scramble.

Still it's not not a long way to the quieter waters of the western Solent, the Isle of Wight seen in the background beyond Calshot,  sunshine, 15 knots of wind doesn't get much better than that.


  1. Hey, Max - were you at the Hamble River Raid that afternoon? Didn't see you, sadly....

  2. Beautiful day, and Sunday, but damn cold!
