A great week weatherwise after the storm . Barrier much less crowded than uzsual at this time of year . Started without autopilot - disconnected a cable when fixing the compass lights . Good slow sail over but then there was a school of whales to greet us on arrival . Plenty of exploring and home now as the weather breaks tomorrow night
