Passing Portland Bill
Dinner in the office
Tonnerre crossing ahead of Campagne de France, looking for the big right
shift under evil-looking cloud. 26 miles to Lizard.
Day 2 dawned a little overcast, but spirits onboard were still high from
the memories of the solitary dolphin which had kept us company, dancing in
the silvery moon-lit waters of last night.
Tidal strategy is the name of the game today, and after a restorative
bacon roll and builders brew we have been sat on the rail enjoying the
beautiful South West coastline slip by, coming within safety-line throwing
distance of both the Portland Bill and Start Point headlands.
The crew on FRA25079 'Cheyenne' must be used to rock-hopping as they
continue to sail Westward within touching distance of the lee shore!
Barney (on the helm) is doing his very best to keep us safe, trading tacks
with a much-bigger-than-us J133 while the off-watch catch up on their
beauty sleep for a couple of hours.
Meanwhile in other news, Nancy is in trouble with the weight police for
bringing onboard a stowaway rock who she has named 'Fast Netty'. Had
better go and make another brew to distract people...
