Today Richards’s old friend Bill arrives and he’s off to meet him at the airport this afternoon at Nantes. He is looking forward to sailing with Bill again.
Bill is a more experienced sailor from the old school. High praise from Richard. :-)
Hopefully if the weather is fair they will push off tomorrow morning taking the ebb tide out to the Bay of Biscay.
So we wont hear from them for awhile as they will be well offshore and into the Bay of Biscay with no phone contact possible.
They plan to head for La Coruna and may not arrive until Sat or Sun.
Meanwhile Richard is down on the boat tidying up! - well at least the washing up is done!
Home life - I also spoke to Fran last night and life at home is trundling along nicely, with Sam chilling out down the side of the bed and the Rav has been fixed by the guy that looked after the Citroen. Fran had a few tears back in July when she waved Richard off but wishes him well and sends her love. x
