We had a very tough sail from Majorca to Corsica - large seas and F6-7 winds - everytone was happy to arrive.
We relaxed in Corsica and after a few drinks on the boat had a big evening out - ended with slamming B52s in the B52 bar!
Engine challenges today - turned out to be an earthing problem but delayed our progressing out until 17.00.
The skipper of a Wally 77 foot carbon boat came to help us our and with Bruce managed to diagnose the problem. We had to sneak a look on the Wally - it was very smart.
We are no on route to Rome.
