Round GB 2021, Day78. Lyme Regis to Studland Bay.

I had initially thought to take the last of the tidal gate around Portland and to go into Portland harbour but I found that the Round the Island race was due to start on Saturday, that would mean about a thousand boats in the Solent so I thought it best to press on and try and get to the Hamble on Friday before the mayhem. So, I left at 04:45 to get the start of the gate using the engine in zero wind.

Rounding The Bill by the inshore route which is 300 yards wide,
further out and you will likely end up in the most extensive and
dangerous race and over falls in the channel. This was taken two
minutes after the tide makes the transition practical.
