Foreign parts

This one may be out of order?

Left Plymouth Wednesday after lunch. Did not stop to finish a game of bowls. It was rather too exciting a sail overnight with the boat charging into big waves head on. Hydra the Hydrovane managed the steering and Windy Wendy the wind generator made sure the batteries were fully charged.  It had calmed down by the time we arrived off the French coast and later tied up in L’Aber Wrac’h

Next morning surprised to find that the folk on the British boat called Walden that tied alongside we knew from way back when sailing from Hayling Island,  in fact from messing about in boats as teenagers. And they are heading across to the Caribbean too.

Stocked up with French bread and wine and sailed on a favourable wind for a change through the Chenal du Four to Camaret

Sunny and warm at last. Thank you for all your comments. Will hopefully be able to add some pics when get better Internet. Probably setting off across Bay of Biscay to Spain tomorrow while weather is fine which will take at least 3 days or so.
