Past The Manacles

We left as intended at 0630 UTC with lovely send off. Out into lumpy wind against tide English channel with the new sail up for the first bit. Pics from Isabella in due course. Good NE breeze and we're heading west of the Ushant separation zone. Berri very heavy and sluggish but we're still making 7+ knots. Boat a bit of a mess while we get things sorted - I'll try to send this then big sort out.

Caroline's photos

These images were sent to me (Alex's sister, Isabella) by Caroline G
who went down to Falmouth this week and took the photos. They show the
new sail made for Berrimilla in Falmouth.
