What was all that guff about threads of equanimity?

Off we went, out through the swing bridge at the end of the dock and 180 starboard into the Tagus. 15 knots of wind right on the nose but no movimento from the wind generator's whizzer. It ought to turn at that windspeed, even with the engine running but it should stop itself charging the battery. So 180 port, back to the end of the mole, another 180 port and back in the queue for the swing bridge. Here we are, back in berth 825 and the techie will be here in the morning.

Probably only a small adjustment needed but best done by the expert.

So Henry's Sagres is in consultative mode and we ain't weeping. Yet!

We'll keep you posted...
