The leg up to Bermuda was quite choppy with a lot of headwinds.
We arrived on 19th May.
On the way we saw lots of jellyfish and this has continued all the way across the Atlantic.
I think they are 'Velella' or 'Sail Jellyfish' which do not sting but they also look a bit like Portuguese Men of War that do....
Bermuda is very pretty with beautiful beaches and clear turquoise waters. It is v expensive.
You cannot hire cars so we had to hire scooters. Sadly Heather achieved a Bermudan tattoo, as the locals call it, after an argument with a wall.
I was very proud to receive the document you can see referring to me as Captain Edward prior to setting off across the Atlantic for my first trans-oceanic passage as skipper.
