That's the first 24 hours at sea completed, no problems but lack of wind! But that has now changed, we have about 12 knots from the NE and we're averaging a 5.5 knots. Long may this wind continue!
Serafina is just ahead of us and we have started our evening SSB chats, though last nights could have been done with string and tin cans we were that close! It was a good photo opportunity though.
When we were last in the UK our grandson gave us a compass to take with us.
It now has pride of place by the nav table - thanks Jakie xx
