Start from the Royal Thames line and the smart money was on the Island end of the line for the beat down the Solent with the tide.  Started with the full main and No. 3 but soon put a reef in  and plenty of tacking to keep in the strongest current.  Shingles bank was visible as we beat out of the Solent and put the chicken shute up as we rounded the Needles.  Couple of broaches on the run to St Catherine's but got a bit more lively as we approached the corner and carried on on the same jibe for a bit too long before we dropped it and jibbed back for the approach to Bembridge.  Kept in close to Ryde Sands and a bit too close at one point when it went down to 1.5m although we did not go aground as Pavo did just inside us.  Approaching the finish was a bit tricky due to the strong tide in Cowes Roads but at least we made sure we crossed the finish line before turning into Cowes.
