Last night I embarked on a pretty long journey after a very tiring day. I travelled from Liverpool to Southampton via Watford and Clapham and eventually arrived at the Ibis in Southampton at 11.30pm. I collapsed into bed but in true busy day style was still awake re-thinking the events of the day until well past 1am.
I was however treated to a lie in which is unusual these days and I was able to take a leisurely stroll down the sea front and enjoy a Starbucks in peace.
So why was I in Southampton on my own and why had I made the journey. It was because a couple of months ago I received an invite from Sunsail to be their guest at Ladies Day during Cowes week. The plan was brunch, racing, and canapés. I’d never ever been sailing, always wondered if I would like it and thought this was a perfect opportunity to try it out. I’d also always wondered how much room you actually got on a boat and whether my Mini Travellers would like it!
So we got the Red Jet over to Cowes at 9.45am and hoped that the sun would shine and the wind would blow. It did neither!
There was also a fabulous crew (including me who actually did a lot of watching others crew) including
Camilla from Cruising Association
Emma from Sailing Today
Georgie from Yachts & Yachting
Monika from Mum on the Brink
Rosie from A Rosie Outlook
Plus Lucy, Chloe and Pippa from Sunsail and our token male and Skipper, Nick.
