Heading East

The picture shows Bonita with her all weather crew of D and Dave Patuck bravely sailing out of the Swale at the start of her cruise.

This is the same fine crew that took us safely on a stormy passage from Falmouth to Southern Ireland last May, when the weather was considerably colder. We had intended to leave our mooring at midnight last night after a day at work, but a forecast of NE force 5 winds made us think that a 12 hour delay and a night in bed might be a better idea.


We now have lighter head winds and bright sunshine as we head East, hoping to be in Holland in time to join the Dutch OGA party.
