Calm seas and light airs dominated our passage into French waters over the last 24 hours. Voyage crew soaked up some rays as we drifted under sail and clear skies yesterday morning. We then continued under motor hoping to catch the tidal gate at Alderney Races. This trip was punctuated by a full fire drill by the permanent crew - an impressive show of preparation!
Following strange noises in the night, thanks to a late anchoring party, and a literally 'hot' lunch, everyone is anticipating arrival in style at St.
Malo sometime this afternoon. Forward Starboard Watch (Karen, Neave, Katherine, Jenny R., Laurence, David, John D., Stewart)
