Sat in camerat near brest after a crossing of the channel from brighton.  All went smoothly across and we negotiated the chenal du four without too much mishap!  We entered port in a strong f7 wind leaving james the skipper a tough task to park but he coped well. Today we have provisioned the boat for a long passage and filled up with water and fuel. Tomorrow we will do all the little jobs that are annoying ie leaking bits and broken bits and then we hope to leave to cross Biscay on Sunday but its all weather dependent. At the moment the wind is too strong but should get weaker nearer Monday. Hopefully ill post a photo of the boat tomorrow all good so far!
