The blue kite was Frances and Tom, we had a white kite. 

We made it round, took the southern channel with a lot of gybing back and forth. We managed not to ground, but the other 800 did. I wouldn't fancy doing it in more than 5 knots in an easterly or westerly!

There was big shut down where the sea breeze was fighting the gradient which wasn't very kind to us. Generally the best breeze was around the top past the Emsworth channels. 

We got a good kicking on corrected time. The writing was on the wall when the Tasars were still only few minutes behind at the bridge and then tide only got stronger for those coming back later! Lost by 25 minutes! Must be some sort of record. 

It was pretty fun though. Nice to see round that way from on the water.
