Everyone else seems to be doing the same. One sail only seen this morning leaving this huge harbour. And a cross channel ferry which I reckon will be full of folk needing to get back to work after the half term hols.
It's crucial to get tide and winds right for crossing to the Channel Islands and the forecast had been promising for today. We'd made a sound plan but the wind is stronger than predicted and we seem to be in the middle of (another) depression where not only is there a lot of rain but the wind direction all over the place. Even exploring the city won't be fun in this so we're staying warm and dry.
We've sailed an average of every other day so are a bit behind schedule but should still make it for our Biscay crossing in under two weeks.
Hope the weather is better where you are.
Love to all. Emails are really appreciated.
