Arrived at Dartmouth just after 4 o'clock this afternoon, with both of us feeling the effects of little sleep.The trip across the Bristol Channel was great with pods of dolphins joining us on a least 4 occassions. The weather turned just as we were reaching Lands End which made the final part of our trip a little uncomfortable! One lesson learnt is that you dont leave your lifejacket next to the heaters when you're off watch, as it detonates. Makes a great alarm clock though! Off to swanage tomorrow prior to a quick stopover at Lymington to see friends in Berthon! Then which way to France? Originally we were going to go straight to Boulogne but we may decide to cross earlier and work our way North on the French side - this has all come about as a result of the biggest regatta in northern europe taking part in kiel until 30 june, thus leaving no room at the inn! Hoping all are well, till our next blog
