Position 47:43N 05:42W
Yesterday we made better progress. Currents
seemed kinder and less wind but still pretty much on the nose. We had a
bit of a change in direction for a while so we were able to motorsail rather
than just motor.
The engine has not been off since we left La
Coruna. It was not our intention to motor all the way accross Bay of
Biscay and the English Channel but this seems to be what we will be
Yesterday we had a French War ship, a french
submarine, whales and dolphins. so quite an exciting day.
The sun was shining and a bit warmer than we have
had it for the last few days.
We now have current against us again and it is not
clear where we will be making landfall in UK.
It may well be Falmouth rather than Plymouth
because of tides..
