Marine Forecast; Northerlies 5-10 kts, fine.

Crew:  Geoff

After doing some maintenance on the winch, cast off from Chaffers  at 1235 hrs and hoisted the Main and No. 3 Genoa. (Would have used No. 1 by was being cautious due to sailing single-handed).

A nice breeze and beautiful fine day so navigated around north of Somes Island towards Seaview Marina and then back home again. The Autopilot performed flawlessly. Great day out marred only by discovery of a leak in the exhaust pipe which caused water to flood into the stern locker and then into the engine compartment and bilges.  Will get exhaust pipe repaired or replaced by Travis tomorrow. Returned back at berth at 1545 hrs.

Total distance: 12.66 nautical miles.
