As blogged yesterday we are on course to go inside Ouessant at about 2000 tonight and that will take us out of Biscay into the English Channel. Just around the bend is L'Aber Wrac'h which we will go into tonight to get a good night's sleep and some diesel. We probably have enough to get to St Peter Port but want to be certain. Hopefully the promised northerlies will enable us to sail the rest of the way.
It is a fine sunny evening and the sea is very flat - it could be a duckpond. We have been visited by large numbers of dolphins today, they were with us for some hours playing in the bow wave. We are beginning to see a bit more shipping  now including one other yacht..
