I am a lecturer at City of Portsmouth College, so on Easter break, we took Isla II out from Chichester Marina on 27th March and sailed her to Bursledon in windy conditions on the Friday (28th) and then back again during Storm Kathleen, here are the links.


Good Friday to Hamble (


Bursledon to Chichester trip ( (Storm Kathleen)

Hi Rupert, 


I enjoyed the video. I have only one suggestion. If you use a syphon for transferring  fuel from the can into the tank, it will save all the splashing of deisel on to the boat. I have got one from a hardware store costing a couple of pounds though I imagine there are quite a few on the market.


Kind regards
