As I write this, we have just completed the gybe necessary to head south along the coast of Spain towards Portugal. Both crew members are quite excited about this and looking forward to finding warmer weather.
After fueling up at the fuel dock at Marina Coruna, including both our main tank and 50 gal fuel bladder, we left A Coruna right around 11:00. Winds were very light and variable to start so we ended up motoring for about 5 hours. But at 4:30, the winds picked up, we pulled out the genoa and turned off the engines. This is more like it!
SH is moving along just fine with waves that are reaching 10-12 feet at times and are rather confused. It makes for a bit of a bumpy ride but we’re both managing okay so far. Amy is up at the helm for her first night shift, so I’m going to keep this short so I can go get some shut eye!
