Tuesday morning

We motored overnight after a bit of sailing in the evening.The wind is light,fluky but behind us.We are roughly half way to our objective.It seems that the mist interesting news is Ged and my bowel movements. At least we think so and insist on both giving Ian an update apparently.Sadly it seems thgat in my enthusiasm with the jet washer have knackered the cockpit speakers so no music until we get to and I buy some new ones.That is all for now as we bob along with the cruising chute about 100 miles west of the restr peninsular.

Noon Monday

The technology is causing me grief, so if you are reading this it is more luck than judgement.We are currently motoring as there is hardly any wind. Tonight is curry night.No one fallen out yet.Fingers crossed for wind.We are just 30 miles north west of the Scillies.

What it is all about

Thank you for looking at the page. I have set this up to record our journey from Port Dinorwic (the actual port at Y Felinheli) towards A Coruña in north west Spain. Sailors always say towards because it is superstition that you will fail if you say you are going to a particular location.

We are Ian Cheek, Ged Tyrer and me.
After months of preparation we hope to set off about 8pm, Saturday 18 May.
I hope to keep you up to date with our progress but if entries dry up it is more likely to be a failure in technology than a problem with u and the boat.
