We just finished dinner and are preparing for our last night at sea. The sail through the Channel was smooth and the weather was superb except for Marc's watch last night. He and Jantine had some serious showers but by the time Monique and I took over the sky was clear again and it stayed clear all day. We passed the cliffs at Beachy Head and sailed all the way up to Dover. Then the wind dropped to practically zip and we had to start the engine.

From Dover we're motorsailing up NE about 30 Nm or so and then turn East to cross the shipping lanes and head for Westkapelle. From there the route is very familiar.

By now we’re sure to arrive Sunday but an accurate ETA is still difficult. I don't expect us to get there before dinner though.

I feels a bit weird to know this will be my last night at sea. Tomorrow I'll be back at Scheveningen where I left September last year.

It was a very eventful an exciting trip! It had changed my life in more than one way and a new future is about to start. I'm ready for it and full of energy to make it happen.
