Slipped Lowestoft at 0750, put one reef in the mainsail and beat to windward in southerly winds for about 41/2 hours before putting in a second reef with a strengthening wind gusting 28 knots.

I hove to, to look at plan (single handed sailing now) as waves heading into the River Alde looked menacing. Decision made I entered the river an hour and a half before HW. All was well and I sailed up the river on Genoa alone and picked up a visitor’s buoy.
