Left Guernsey on the Commodore Clipper via Jersey to U.K. View from cabin, sunset over Corbiere. Arrived Portsmouth and popped up to see Lucy, my daughter, at Greenwich Uni. We had always wanted to visit the Cutty Sark and the Maritime Museum. Both vessels only had steel and ingenuity in common. Great Indian supper at the Mogul if you like that sort of thing; Jalfrezi, Tarka Dhal and Naan. Sandown and the Volksworld Show, touched base with Daisey on arrival and set up camp. Sensible evening we had Pizzas in Esher with the view to the Latebay line-up in the morning. Obviously a BBQ later and the evening was in full motion. Amazing evening and will be revered for ever... Probably a little touch of Black Barrel helped! AM and off to Dover for Calais. On speck tried the Chunnel "£205 one way", I said "you must be joking" she said "Sir, I don't joke about money". No deal and I was let out back and onto the M2. All the same the ferry still cost £105 one way. The night was spent north of Antwerp.
