Cody Sailing Club are camping in Chichester Harbour this weekend. With the high pressure building the forecast was for no wind but this afternoon we have had a lovely couple of hours on the water in really gentle winds. If you just decide to go for it then sometimes it pays.
Cody are just back from their annual summer camp which this year was based in Salcombe harbour. Last Thursday saw us take to the water early. Alarms were set for 0530 so that we were on the water by 0600. This is not the normal hour to set out but the early start was made worthwhile on two counts. One the beautiful sunrise as we set off from Frogmore creek. The other was the dedication of a couple of other campers who also got up early to make us tea and bacon sandwiches for breakfast. Light early morning winds meant the catering team needed to be flexible and cooked us our splendid spread at North Sands. After being fed the winds built so we made our planned destination of Hope Cove, retuning after having had coffee and ice cream. Having been to 19 Cody camps this trip is up there for providing positive memories.

Have ever fancied sailing? Cody Sailing Club have a number of dinghies available now where you can experience the excitement and freedom of being on the water. There are also a couple of cruisers anchored off the shore. There will be people around until late this afternoon
The next Cody camp takes place starts 26 May on the western edge of Poole Harbour, not far from Corfe. It is always very peaceful.
Tempted? How about this for some spectacular evening scenery. This photo of the sunset was taken on 12 May just of the camp from Emelita whilst anchored just off the camp
