The worst of the windy weather has past us for now and, apart from lying awake in the middle of the night listening to the wind whistling in the rigging and getting up to check the anchor cable and shore line, in particular at the turn of the tide, we have enjoyed a peaceful night.

This morning, with the sun shining, I managed to touch up one rust spot that persists on reappearing on the port side as well as some internal chores, namely servicing the burners on the Taylor stove and oven. Then, this afternoon feeling confident that the wind had abated and that Sylph could be left to her own devices, I rowed ashore for a leg stretch and to do some minor shopping at the local supermarket. Now, back on board, it is time for dinner.

Looking ahead, the wind is forecast to remain fresh from the SW for all of next week, though there is considerable divergence between the models so we shall keep and eye on them and remain ready to continue on our way if the opportunity presents.

All is well.
