A full English breakfast later and time for a somewhat chaotic trainng session for bracing of yard arms before such a smooth up anchor that few noticed we were under way slipping out of Swanage bay under motor.
Interesting exercise in hoisting sail later and Tenacious was ghosting along in a force 2 to 3 east south easterly heading for Cherbourg or thereabouts.
Assisted the Royal Navy to calibrate their sonar and radar (the missiles missed by a mile), muster stations and happy cleaning later we are still ghosting along towards a pleasant warm evening and a couple of feet nearer to Cherbourg still under sail. What is for dinner?
