We got going at 1200 GMT on Tuesday 13 January 2015, with Harry and his pals Mike and Pam waving goodbye from the refuelling dock. But not before we has a team picture of us all in the cockpit of our home for the next 2 weeks or more – the sturdy sailing vessel Ocean Science
from S to P – Mark, Teresa. Glennbo, Gregor, Ben and Ben
A bit of sailing after we left the marina but we are motoring at the moment, having scythed though the passage between Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. The boats in the classic race to Martinique are well ahead of us, now in the open Atlantic, and we hear of promising trades of 25kn that are giving them a speed of 10kn. It could be us soon.
