Sunrise was just before 6am. I was fast asleep and Linda was on watch, capturing the moment.

At 07:26, we passed our Cape Henry waypoint which marks the entrance to Chesapeake Bay and the start of the big ships’ channel to Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk and Portsmouth. Only 28 or so miles to go. The tide will be against us for most of the way so progress will be slower than expected. But with no deadline to meet, we’ll just enjoy taking in the sight of land after almost 10 days on the open sea.

A warship and a tanker on the horizon, just after sunrise.

I was asleep so all must have been well.
