Yesterday morning we slipped the mooring lines and set sail for the South and warm weather. This has been after two years of planning and preparation.
The sailing was almost perfect for the wind strength and direction but the sea swell did build throughout the day so I decided to stop at Fishguard overnight rather than chance adverse currents around St David’s Head at night. The anchorage has been a bit rolly overnight but is improving slowly. I will stay here another night because winds will drop to near zero later this evening.
All systems on the boat worked well, I need to secure a few things better that fell over during the sail and a few other minor and easy jobs.
