We are on passage to Portland Bill and the Isle of Wight. Might stop over at Studland if the weather picks up but cloudy and cool at the moment.
Yesterday we had a good sail from Falmouth to Darmouth - making the 74mn in just over 11 hrs. Spinnaker for a few hours at first until it got a bit lively in 20kts and then poled out genoa all the way to Start Point after which we had a nice broad reach into Dartmouth.
After a good evening and a few crew protests we got away at 0600hrs.
Fried eggs, bacon and Pete will have his beans for breakfast shortly.
