... dice, that usually means some wind also. The wind picked up around dinner slightly off our port aft quarter ( back left in English) and steadily built up to around 15-18 knots, plus an added bonus of swinging round on to our beam which is our best sailing angle - we were up to 7/8 knots in no time and even 9.5 at one point through a band of cloud that we're giving us gusts in excess of 20 knots - we covered the last 40 miles in just 5 ...

Last Day in Camaret

Tomorrow we leave to cross Biscay, we have opted to go to Ria de Viveiro due to a big swell around La Coruna.

First thing this morning we had to move the boat to another mooring on the outside quay due to a rally of yachties arriving - I don't like motoring in breezy weather, the boat is very difficult to steer but with the help of a couple of people we managed to get her alongside without any drama, but the motion is worse than being at sea - so no sleep tonight I'm guessing. The rest of the day we spent foraging in the bay, we found razor clams, cockles, mussels, lob worms and peeler crabs. ...
