Taking a few minutes lunchtime to sit and watch the boats going by (or was it the clouds going over) whilst Miranda practices her jumping over me. You know it's just a matter of time before she launches herself onto your chest.

Lewis has been sailing his model Wayfarer, having spent the morning making sails and rigging the boat. He tried it on Hatchet pond, but the weather was very gusty, so rather tricky to get it to perform. He's been adjusting rigging and redesigning components since coming home!

There's video footage on the Cowes.co.uk website of the collision between a supertanker and a yacht. A timely reminder that a blast of the horn is all you'll get if you are in their way
