The preparation for our departure from Turgetries is nearly complete with just a couple of last minute
hitches! Assuming we can solve these in the next couple of hours we will start our journey
across the Mediterranean this afternoon.
We expect to take up to 3 weeks to reach Gibraltar due to the vagaries of the Med weather. After we
have reprovisioned in Gib we will strike off for the Canaries which should only be a 4 day beam reach
if the normal weather prevails.
Freewheel looks like new with her major refit complete and our first test of the major systems also went
well this time so fingers crossed!!
Yachtworks have once again done a great job and it will be a wrench to leave all our great friends here....
