NEW Weymouth & Portland Cruising Association (WPCA) members Bill Barna and Lorraine Meese-Kennedy took their yacht Merlot to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight for the weekend.

Alun and Liz Harfoot in Madeline also took advantage of the good weather and picked up one of the recent mooring buoys in Studland Bay. They had several visits ashore walking along the stunning coastline.

Meanwhile, Eleanor returned to Weymouth motoring in light winds on Saturday after a week in Cherbourg and St Vaast followed by Monterey.

The wind was force four to five and so there was a very lively sail home for Monterey.
