We left the anchorage at 04.30 and celebrated somewhat later with traditional bacon sandwiches.  Navigation was basically simple; point the boat into the wind.  It was not until Beachy Head that the wind relented and we could sail properly until through we passed through the Looe Channel.  A swift passage saw us alongside in the Gosport Marina, Camper and Nicholson as was, at 07:30 Tuesday ready for a day of sorting out teething problems and receiving some more visitors.
