Seafarers to Lepe Daysail.

The planned cruise to Lepe from Seafarers was unexpectedly gifted by an un-forecasted blast of fluky and sometimes strong wind from the North on the way home.
The wind was forecast light from the East when Edmund and Julie, Stephen and Adri, Steve and Mel in Trios, Roy and Jenny in their 2k, Keith and John in the Sport14, Vanessa and Andy in the Vision and Mike and Rob from Seafarers in a Wayfarer at 10am and in variable winds sailed to Lepe. It was a lee shore, we had lunch and set sail to return at 13:30 into the teeth of the ebb tide. By staying in the shallows we made over it and were greeted at Seafarers by Dave, who recovered the boats using SC equipment and then staffed the bar. Thanks to Dave and others for hosting us so well.
