Paddles with an Anas acuta...... unashamedly biased toward the sea kayak of that name (actually the voyages of two boats, one 'traffic over gold', one 'quill')

Wednesday Night in the Solent

Wednesday night we met the Waverley entering Portsmouth for the night as the sun was setting.

After this fine sunset, the moon rose and, maybe because of the slightly yellowish full moon, it was very dark on the water by 21.00. We called QHM as the hovercraft seemed to be heading our way, but he had seen us already and turned to pass ahead. Yet another magical night out on the Solent. (and I can recommend the Tektite dive markers we use as being visible a mile ahead from the bridge/flightdeck of a hovercraft at 47kt)
