Bermuda Day 1 - Off on time
Position 19:16.18N 64:27.94W
Date 2359 – 29 April 2011
Well almost on time other than the fact that it takes getting on for five minutes to get the anchor up with 40 plus metres of chain out.
We left in company with
Leaving the Virgin Islands behind for 850nm across open
The islands made a great sight as they dropped quickly astern. The conditions are ideal for Caduceus and for Alice as well, and we were able to average a good 8 knots on a close reach which quickly got us around the hazard of Anegada, water depth 18 metres, and over the shelf into a more comfortable 6 – 7000 metres. Midnight saw us 48 miles on our way, a good start!
