Left Roscoff with the tide early morning coming out to a calm sea. It took the whole day to pass the British Channel islands and now at midnight we have Alderney on our aft starboard beam coming up to the traffic separation zone.In the evening we had a drink on flybridge and given the tranquile circumstances at sea we saw two chapters of Braking Bad which is our favourite TV series at the moment(obviously with the person on watch keeping an eye on everything)
Currently there are 4 ships on our port side but we expect more traffic when the channel is narrowing. With destination Boulogne sur Mer we expect to make landfall Tuesday morning. For the time being weather is predicted to be good until Tuesday evening.
