I am pleased to report that three yachts participated in a cruise to Poole (South Deep) from Thursday to Saturday and returned safely. The weather was fair to good most of the time, although it was very wet whilst leaving Portland. The yachts were Adelaide (Jim Long), Aquilo (Chris and Mike Hill plus George, and Osprey. A covert landing took place on the nearby shore and the walk through the woods led to the site of the 'nodding donkey' oil well. The landowner found us and asked if we had lost our yachts? Fortunately we hadn't. She also said we looked like responsible people! The company was good and we didn't go thirsty.
