Arrived in Eastbourne at 1400hrs.
A lovely coastal sail today, gorgeous coast with amazing white cliffs, everything was going great until the engine started to play up just off Beachy Head, this was more scary than the lightning.
After I removed my head from my hands, it was tools out and fortunately after bleeding the system it seemed to be ok although I now smell like I have showered in diesel. Leaving for Dover tomorrow, I really hope I have cured the problem as its a leeshore wind with little wind, so it's a motor all the way.
They say it happens in threes, 1,lightning 2,engine 3, ??????????
