We then headed towards The Solent to meet up with the two RNLI Lifeboats from Portsmouth for an exercise. On the way we took advantage of the lumpy conditions off The Needles to do a little bit of rough weather boat handling.
We met up with the crew from Portsmouth, let them have a quick look over the boat then headed out to sea to do some drills. After that we made our way in to Portsmouth harbour in the dark for our overnight stay. We finally got off the boat around 10pm, a good day but a long one!
