Alex and crew are ready to go! The boat is ready, passage planning is done and documentation is in order. Provisions are stowed and meals are cooked, frozen, and waiting to be loaded on board. But the weather is refusing to come to the party!
The weather gods (Predictwind and MetBob) decided that there would be a good window to leave from this evening onward, so Alex and Bill brought the boat up to town from Kettering this morning, stopping to fuel up at the RYCT dock and to raise the CYCT burgee!
9am Fri. 19 Jan: Quite bumpy overnight. Winds 24-28kts, gusting into 30's as predicted. Seas mainly wind waves, not too bad, occasionally nasty. Water in cockpit every now and then gets down below!
Morning Wednesday 24 January 2018 (Position report to follow this afternoon)
So what do we do when we're off-watch? Well, it's hard to say, but one thing is certain, it is not boring. It's been a very good passage so far....
