It is great to be back out at sea again in such great sailing conditions.......
We left the dock art 05.45 tihs morning on the start of our passage to Antigua approx 2650nm. It has be a mixed day weather wise, probably influenced by the Islands, but generally we have been sailing downwind with a poed out genoa and main at good speeds in winds of around 22kts from the NNE.The boat has behaved incredibly well in these conditions and we have seen some high numbers on the speed dial! Today has been about settling into the watch system and getting used to being out here again. We are leaving the islands behind - Next stop Antiga!
