A nice day of sailing today, had some dolphins playing around the boat, but the fun is a bit spoiled by the latest weather forecast. On our arrival in the English Channel more than 30 knots of wind head on is expected. That's far more than this boat can handle when sailed shorthanded. So we'll do an evasive manoeuvre and head towards the French coast. That way the heaviest wind should pas imnorth of us. The only problem is that afterwards we will be left with very little wind. But lest first tackle the first issue.
