Star Dancer's adventure begins - on passage to Falmouth for the start of the AZAB.
Together with Mark (Medland) we set sail from Yarmouth Harbour at 0435hrs this morning.
We had the last of the flood tide heading us for the first hour and since then a good six hours of tide taking us well beyond Portland Bill.
We are in Lyme Bay with 30nm to Dartmouth where we will stop the night and be joined by Jonny P.
Some good sailing on a NW wind up to 20kts but as I write this we are motor sailing in 10kts and it has gone more to the West.
Another test of the email/satellite phone comms - if you are reading this it will be working!
