Not started yet and still at home in Blighty, so just an initial test message to see if this technology works.  Just about to pack and heading off to Gibraltar at sparrows fart tomorrow to hook up with Peter and David on board Xplorer. 

 

Hopefully setting sail at 1600’ish on Wednesday, but strong Easterly wind through the straights, possibly 30+ knots.  Need to get the tide right.  Then off to Las Palmas in the Canaries 700 NM away, so probably a 4 to 5 day voyage down the coast of Africa.

 

Will get back in touch once we’re underway.
