Greetings to you both in the Scillies. How is Fairwinds settling into the journey after all the months of preparation? Hope all is well.
All the best for crossing Biscay.
Hello there Hazard

Fairwinds is bearing up well as are her crew. All systems working well, fantastic sunny day on Tresco yesterday complete with succulent barbie on deserted beach etc . . . water not warm enough to tempt either of us in yet though.
The weather is being less co-operative, with the extended five day outlook from the Navtex saying strong winds continuing in Fitzroy. However, at the moment things look marginally better further South than they do here, so we are planning to head off into the deep blue yonder this afternoon.
Next communication should hopefully be from Spain . . .
