Plymouth

Managed to tear ourselves away from the “fleshpots” of Milford Haven (LIDL AND Tesco!). Spent Tuesday night at the anchorage at Dale so as to start early.  It was still pretty windy, fortunately the holding was good.  We set off at 6am into a big sea, guess we must get used to such for the Atlantic crossing (but hopefully it will be warmer then). Gradually the waves flattened out and we had a good sail with Hydra the Hydravane doing the steering which means less amps for Wendy the wind generator to replace in the batteries.  And it was mostly sunny and it DIDNT RAIN!!  It was a beautiful moonlit night.   We rounded Lands End at midnight then sailed along the south coast of England finally berthing in the Mayflower marina in Plymouth about 6pm, 202 miles.

The crew say it is important to hold themselves in reserve on long passages.
