March/April 2016: Season begins...?
Mobile westerly condition continued into March and on the 9th a secondary depression gave cause for flooding concern in Priory Road, but didn't deepen enough. Only by the 2nd week has high pressure arrived and it's time to get the sails back on Seatern. However there was a cold easterly wind and single figure temperatures continued into April so mainly I did some maintenance on Seatern. However sailing did start mid-month although after that the weather got cold again! Click on Thumbnail

Solent Breezes walk
Click on Thumbnail [a walk which was not written up at the time] I parked at Woolston and walked to Solent Breezes which meant that I'd walked the beach from Lee on Solent to the Hamble - all visible from Calshot Tower. [photos from the day]
