Nichola Wright | F7 winds followed by calm. Sunny and warm
We picked up the anchor at 7 am on the 2nd of September to push on the 50nm from Cala Bolonia to Cadiz. We had hoped to split the passage over two days, however, inclement winds were on their way.

As the sun rose, a gentle southerly wind set in allowing us to sail. With the engine silenced, the only noise was from the swishing of Emerald's bow slicing through the waves. Shearwaters gracefully skimmed the waves. Peace, nature, and sailing = happiness. We made a very respectable 6kts SOG with the tide with us.
