This morning, at long last, we escaped the clutches of the Tamar River and are once more jollying along on a beam reach to a gentle north west breeze.  The plan is to head for the Furneaux Group where we will arrive tomorrow morning. I have sailed past this group of islands many times and I thought it high time to stop and have a bit of an explore.

All is well.
