It’s a week of Birthdays. It was Lewis’ the Saturday before we left, Darraghs on Wednesday and mine today. Not much celebrating out here, same day, eat sail sleep.
The wind gods finally left us this morning and we had to put the engine on at 6am. We have had a good run of it up to then so no problems.
The weather is starting to go against us, with 2 high pressures either side pushing together forming as windy upwind patch in our way next week. We are waiting to see how it develops to see a way through easily, but next week will be a lot harder than this, but finger crossed it opens up nicely. At the moment it is still clear blue skies and shorts and t shirts.
