Well 6 days in and over half way in distance and the Bay of Biscay behind us. The wind is in the north-east and it is cloudy at moment but we have had lots of sun. The sailing cognoscenti will realise that we have swapped wind on the nose for wind up the **** hey ho. Spirits are high and we are settling into the regime of watch keeping – for instance up at midnight back to bed at 04.00 –putting on oilies etc then taking them off. The stars and the sunsets have been spectacular; you will all be bored with pictures of sunsets. There is little shipping for us to see but there is activity on the VHF so they are out there. Here are some pictures of the crew excluding “chefy” who was featured yesterday.


This is Colin always beaming





Of all of the pics taken I can’t find one of Bob so here is Bob with Colin





And skipper Roger looking very quizzical leaving Plymouth





Fingers are tired – log on tomorrow
