To Boulogne – 16 June, 24 miles
The wind was light north-westerly, so we decided on Boulogne rather than
Eastbourne. We managed to sail up to the shipping lane, but then had to
motor to Cap Griz Nez to maintain a reasonable speed and course, then
had a nice close-hauled sail in an increasing breeze to Boulogne.
In the harbour, we were welcomed by fellow Royal Harwich club members
Chris and Val on Calidris. They were on their way back to Woolverstone,
and we met purely by chance. By another happy chance they had booked to
eat in Le Doyen, where we also planned to eat having discovered it the
year before. So, we had a very nice dinner together.
