Up anchor on a beautiful still morning! We managed a short drift under just the genoa until the wind died completely and we had to resort to using the engine. We arrived back in Middelburg knowing that we would leave Holland the next morning. We had a fantastic time in Holland and we were definately not emotionally ready to leave!
We popped in to the yacht club for a beer and use of their WiFi.. we sat down and across the table came “it isn’t is it?” yes it was! – in front of us was a bunch of old friends from the Pike and Eel Boat Club! They had just blasted over in their powerboats from Yarmouth to start a two week holiday! Needless to say we had a great evening and far too much drink went down but it was great to see them again.
