Nearing the finish line

Post date: Sep 10, 2015 7:46:48 PM

I think I'm two longish passages away from the end. My last passage 52 was a tough one working against strong winds partly in the dark to get to Eastbourne. It also followed a very busy discovery ride in Brighton that same morning as described in my passage 51 notes to Brighton. But what a discovery!

Strong contra winds persist for Thursday and Friday and I am thus harbour bound for these two days. But it's all change on Saturday. The wind starts blowing from the South or West and I will make the most of these for a long trip to Ramsgate on the Saturday - 60 miles.

I then head for my original departing port, Burnham on Crouch, on the Sunday - a further 50 miles - again with helpful winds. The original plan to arrive on Monday has changed due to family availability changes. So two remaining trips, albeit longish ones, and I'm round!

In the meantime, I'm enjoying the hot and sunny weather in Eastbourne.
