The boat's going well, all safe and seaworthy and I am gradually sorting out minor things, fitted solar panels ( that are a huge advantage), sorted out how best to rig spinnaker -- and so on.
Because of the rubbish weather we have been having with winds right 'on the nose', as it always seems to be, we have only got as far as Audierne in Brittany, just into the Bay of Biscay and are waiting for a window in the weather to get across to La Coruna. From there on it should be 'downhill' all the way.
I have nice memories of the few weeks there in your yard, of easy, friendly people.
Our very best wishes to you all.
