We got away a bit later than planned this morning due to the time it took to obtain a PUK Code for the satphone - fortunately we were sorted and away by 0800.
Tday's sail was a rare thing indeed; good breeze on the beam, which enabled us to sail along our planned track at a cracking eight knots, something we haven't been able to do for pretty much the last month or so...
The boat seems quiet and spacious without our additional crew, but we miss their good-hearted companionship. Now that Angus has gone, the girls have turned on me again!
Not sure how long we will hang here - I'm sure the Rally Poobahs will let us in on the next phase of the plan when we go ashore for sundowners shortly.
