Sunrise or sunset?

Sailors mostly prefer sunrise (I do) because it means you've made it through another night. But this is sunSET as we bring Cracker round south from racing at Felixstowe on the UK's East Coast to be on the Solent for her next race in Cowes.

There are no stars tonight - too much cloud - so dodging the constant lobster pots aint easy! But the phosphorescence streaming out behind us in our wake a nd the little bright green "lights" bobbing in the water in our wake is lovely and the whole evening is tranquil - the wind is light. It will be a longish night but then it'll be dawn again. Now, if it would just stop drizzing with rain for a while. . .
