Blowing a hooley in St. Helier, even the seagulls stayed at home!
Nonetheless, most of the novices braved going aloft. Everyone was relieved when, after the Mate's briefing and the Cook's amazing roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, the Captain decided that we should remain in harbour until the morning. During harbour watch, we repelled boarders and with the wind whistling in the rigging, everyone slept soundly until the early start this morning. Left St.Helier at 8.30 a.m., motored west to Corbiere and then set sail for Cherbourg. The early part of the passage was foggy with a South Westerly Force 5. We are just passing to the East of Sark, ETA Cherbourg 8 a.m. 14 June.
