Well the time eventually arrived to set off. As you can probably tell things
were a little stressed with getting the boat prepared, partying and saying
goodbye to family.
We hung back on the start and only crossed the line 10 minutes after the
gun. What amazed me was we started sailing through the fleet and while we
had our chute up we sailed through a 72 ft Tall ship, Halberg Rassy 56?
Beneteau 50 Oyster 56 etc. She really is quite a fast boat as they all bar
the tall ship had spinnakers.
Night fell we started our watch schedule, the winds have got really light so
we under engine for a few hours. Part of the reason is I (yes me) lost the
tow generator blade by not fixing it properly, so we are consuming power at
night. Really annoying, but I cant even blame Vicki this time.
Sure we will write more later
All our love
