Two boats and many bikes were used in the rendezvous event on the 28th December. Thirteen members of Cody SC cycled from West Dean to Chichester Marina, while two boats and five members enjoyed a sail from Itchenor. The weather was grey and overcast all day, dry, SSE F0-3. We sailed towards East Head against the incoming tide having launched at 09:30, and then turned to sail with the tide to Chichester Marina where we met up. The venue was the Boat Yard Cafe, and their service and food were excellent. Having warmed up over hot chocolate/coffee, and lovely food, the cyclists headed back to West Dean. The sailors sailed to Itchenor, packed up the boats and met the cyclists at West Dean before we all travelled home. We certainly made the best of the daylight, having left and returned home in the dark. An excellent day both on and off the water.
