We arrived in Lyminton Yacht Haven at 19:15.  Had a good sail for most of the way.  Wind built exactly as predicted and by the time we arrived at the Needles we had taken down the main and were sailing under jib alone.  Interesting (!) passage through the Needles channel with wind against a strong tide and huge waves.  Unfortunately the main split along a seam as we were taking it down about 4 miles S of the Needles.  At least it lasted this long!  A trip to the sailmaker is on the agenda for tomorrow.
