Seascape with cliffs in the distance

A late breakfast of pancakes this morning. We were feeling a bit grubby and salty after being in the sea yesterday so we went for a lovely embracing shower. Next to our boat was a lavish yacht similar to one Madonna would own and we convinced ourselves we saw her through the blacked out windows!

We split into two teams for a challenge: We had to go down town in Poole and find the tackiest souvenir for £3. One team made balloon ice creams and the other team found a "dad dance mat" and made the skipper try out.

Then we set the sails again; we're getting the hang of it now. We sailed from Poole all the way to a spot opposite Osborne House on the Isle of Wight.

We had some chill time in the afternoon, which we spent chatting, listening to music and playing cards. We even had a bit of a rave on the front of the boat!

We need to go now as we're going to do a night sail tonight. Stay tuned to read all about it!
