... and the beam sea was rather uncomfortable until we turned the corner and headed north; at which point the following sea pushed us along and was infinitely more pleasant. The good news is that with the strong winds and ideal direction we fairly flew along under canvass, reaching a new 'speed over ground’ record of 10.5 knots, our first time in double-digits.

Alanna's took a while longer so Mike and I walked around the shops again, still nothing interesting. Went back and paid, then back to Helen’s place, packed slowly, used the internet to ...
