Arrive Torquay

Route planning said leave 10:00 arrive 05:00 following day. Actual, leave
10:25 arrive 05:25 - sounds like creative accounting to me. The tides
worked well to flush us out of the Needles with what is, for Caduceus, short
tacking down the Solent in 25kts of wind. Thereafter the wind and our
course as usual coincided. We sailed against most of the foul tide and then
resorted in the shortest distance between two points being a straight line.

We are all looking forward to some favourable wind and letting Caduceus do
what she is good at, eating up miles under sail.
