We got away around 8 o'clock after a sleepless night doing anchor watch as the wind blew through the anchorage and had a French boat dragging anchor near us.
It was 25 kn and a lumpy sea when we left but gradually  calmed and we needed to motor from about 1030 in the evening. Still motoring now and probably until we cross through the high pressure system. 
There were nine other boats that left in the morning so we weren't alone in choosing this weather window.
All well on board
