After a busy night spent dodging around large cargo vessels we have safely arrived.
David was perplexed during the night when he plotted a route crossing the track of 3 large ships, with 2 passing in front of us, and one behind, to find his best laid plans were scuppered when a 1140 foot long container ship decided to overtake everything else at 20.4 knots, on a direct collision course with us. Despite us sailing, and therefore the stand-on-vessel, we decided that discretion was better than valour, and hove-to until it passed us.
Now off to the showers. We are delighted to find out that there is to be a beer festival tonight on the quayside.
