A week ago today….

With the 24 hour delay announcement last Sunday H&R and Eric made good use of the time making sure DIDI looked her best and everything was as ‘ship-shape’ as it could be before the off . Thus prepared they then took up an offer of a sail out of the harbour from new friend Ian to see what conditions were like on the open sea and in typical British fashion had……….. a picnic! 

       

Today it looks as though forward progress is still being made, in part thanks to the direction of the wind, and it does seem as if H is becoming somewhat of a ‘speed junkie’. Other crews have advised of  11 knot speeds as they surf down waves. No sure if R is up for that particular challenge. He is in the lead on the fundraising front though.
