Stopover Dartmouth

A report back from the crew yesterday shows that all is well - they arrived in Dartmouth at 13h00 on Monday after leaving Eastbourne at 10h00 on Sunday, and sailed through the night.  They had a minimum 20 / maximum 33 knots of wind and made up a good 8.3 knots in speed!  They were up early again this morning, and left Dartmouth to make Falmouth by this evening. 

I'll be downloading the latest GRIB files (detailed weather information files) tonight to see what the Bay of Biscay has in store for us over the coming week.  The weather and sea state will determine exactly when we leave Falmouth - sometimes it's a bit of a wait to ensure that we catch a good weather window.

I'll keep you posted....
