Another day of glorious sunshine with 20 knots of breeze, unfortunately still from the east so on the nose again!  Despite this we had a beautiful sail today even if it was beating into a choppy sea and we didn’t have to resort to the engine until the last 20 minutes – the first day of non motoring I think!


It is also definitely getting warmer, we cast off our fleeces in the afternoon and had a lovely dinner sitting outside in the cockpit, another first.  Having been a bit partied out in the UK we decided we now wanted a bit more company so we put the ARC flag up in case any fellow ARC boats spotted it but so far it is very quiet.

Our first dinner outside – at last!!
