We left Refuge Cove this morning. The idea of wasting a favourable breeze, even if a bit more than optimal, was more than I could bare. So here we are, running with a scrap of jib poled out to port (I think that will need to come down shortly) and the staysail to starboard, the main stowed.
There are dark clouds astern with more wind on the way.
All is well.
