What a storm that was last night! I’ve not heard a storm like that for a long time, and I don’t think I’ve been in a tent in that bad a storm, apart from in Spain when I got caught in a mini tornado! One good thing at least I didn’t need my head torch on with all the lightning! Not too sure how long the storm went on for but I remember the rain stopping at around midnight.
Very leisurely start to the day, I got up at my normal time of about 6 o’clock, but I didn’t rush to pack away I thought I’d let everything dry out which it didn’t! But it was still good to be lazy!
I caught the Fastcat from the island back to Portsmouth; then it was a nice fast ride home with a good tailwind.
Once home I had a quick couple of pints in the pub before coming home to dry the tent out and wash my clothes ready for the off again tomorrow.
