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

The Spanish laminators did their job.  We passed our safety scrutineering and Charlie has arrived and already repaced the bow light. 
Off for a drink now....  stowing tomorrow
