And they're off!
The race started om time at 1240 GMT with the biggest committee boat in the world... a car ferry with people waving and shouting. The quay was packed and the locals gave us a great send off with brass bands on both sides of the marina entrance! Not a lot of wind for the start, but Night Owl dropped into a good spot in the leading group. Sadly that group is made of bigger boats and they have sped away. We'll get them on handicap later ;o)
Watermaker has been re-commissioned now and is working, and James made the first sandwiches of the trip. Macaroni Carbonara tonight. Yum.
Off to sail the boat now. Bye Bye
