Bit crowded at the committee boat end of the line so not a good start and initially stuck behind a few boats in there dirty wind.  Once we tacked clear managed to get  away and ended up 2nd boat out of the Solent.  Beat all the way to St Albans as the tide turned and stuck there going no where on either tack until we managed creep into Weymouth Bay.  Quite a good lift out of the bay around Portland Bill and went through the over falls about 3 miles off but no big deal as it was only neaps.  Looking quite good across Lyme Bay but getting to the finish proved a bit fraught with multiple tacks to get  in.  Bit concerned we were completely stuffed as we had not seen many boats with us but actually ended up 2nd which was not bad for a 21 hour beat!
