Great trip to Littlehampton, we sailed 23 miles in 6 hours. We worked our passage plan perfectly- from West Pole beating to the boulder buoy then through the Looe. 

We took the opportunity to test out the autopilot. 

It works! The autopilot in operation.
Then a good run into Littlehampton. Just on the mainsail fitted with a gybe preventer we averaged 4.5 knots and Grace sailed beautifully!

Lots of lobster pots to avoid so need to keep a close watch!

Watching for pots

After a bit of a rolly entrance it was nice and calm in the river where we rafted up …… for the first time
