Lune Orbitor and Jackalope left the Crouch with a fresh breeze towards the Spitway. Jackalope continued SE to investigate the SW Sunk (It has been said that the position of the crossing may have changed after the winter storms). Jackalope concluded that it had moved as he touched the bottom at LW, but with the sea being rather choppy decided against investigating further.
They were joined in the Blackwater by Windhover who is berthed in Bradwell.
Parana and Blue Moon were also intending on going, but Parana had an ingress of water which needed attention and Blue Moon had an electronic issue and when resolved left BYH, but although it was probably too late to reach Blue Moon made an effort and after making slower than expect progress after the Spitway, when to Brightlingsea.
