Yesterday was very eventfull day. The morning was beautifuly sunny and we set off from Dymchurch towards Dugeness against the tide. We enjoyed the satisfaction of rounding the second corner of the six and continued towards Rye bay. Not for long, shooting sounds, red flag and later a patrol boat made it clear to us that it won’t be straightfoward. And so we were diverted towards France in order to stay out of the danger zone. We made it to Wichelsea beach where the tides run miles. It took us two hours to get the boats on shore. During this our wheels and essential piece of our equipment broke without them we won’t be able to get the boats in and out of the water. They are fixed a bit now, but do not have a long life ahead. We will somehow have to sort it out !
