I was lucky to be able to join a late season trip to Dunkirk on the local RYA school boat Piranha, run by crouch sailing school.
What I didn't realise was that I would be finishing my coastal skipper practical during the trip.
I joined 3 other crew (Caterina, Steve, Hugh) and skipper/instructor Nick.
Amazingly good weather meant we had a lovely trip over the channel and back again.
Excellent sea conditions too. The best way to spend the clock change weekend with the extra hour.
I really really enjoyed it.

This is a yachting blog with a difference, as we go on a journey of discovery, a journey of stupid ideas, ridiculous adventures and quite a lot of swearing. The daily commute will never look the same again. (instagram)"
