17th August, 2019 La Rochelle (still)

We left central la Rochelle late yesterday and immediately found we could no more than 2 kts and 1800 rpm so dived into the massive Minimes marina ½ mile away to clear the prop. This was done this morning and found to be nothing more than mussels and other crustaces all over the prop and preventing it from (un)folding. Now revs go up to 2500 with a reassuringly brisk wash behind. Then set off for Les Sable D’Olone.
