On my way again
Minka of Southampton - Cruising Log

Position 50:16.12N 004:15.04W at 12.20 Course 216
Minka and I are now in Plymouth having sailed down from the Solent via Poole where we stopped for two nights on the town quay.
We have now left Plymouth en route to Coruna which I am hoping will take about 4 days. So far everything is going well and we are doing over 6kts with the wind on the beam. I am heading a bit west of my course to keep out of the Ushant traffic.
Before I set off I fitted a second winch to the starboard side of the mast so that I can haul up the spinnaker and code zero at the mast.
I will start photos later but I think and hope this is going to be a much duller trip than two years ago. The forecast is good but I might get headed later. 410nm to go
