Last few days have started seeing slightly lower temperatures. Not quite reaching 30ºC and quite pleasant compared to rather warm balmy first days before.
Picked-up hook about 11:30 this morning and enjoyed brief and lovely 10NM/1½hr sail on 2-reefed genoa with following wind. Last here 6 years ago it's just a pleasant as last time. Been seeing up to 30kn wind during the day and now, just gettin' dark it's beginning to settle down nicely. Come midnight the wind should be a respectable light breeze without nasty gusts. Must admit, the moment our hook hit dirt we held really well so good to know we're in a good sticky patch of seabed. We could have lost squiddy because neither of us remembered to reel-in before dropping hook. As it is, squiddy lives to swim and entice another day.Thinking of staying here and visiting shore tomorrow. Impressive fortifications and Cappuccino freddo awaits. Didn't fancy a precarious run ashore in RIB today and would have been reluctant to leave Ticketeeboo swinging alone.
