We bade our farewells to Jake & Judy Backus and were off at 10:00 and sailing within a couple of minutes of exiting the harbour at Henån. It had been a really pleasant bonus to meet the Backus', they were good company and we hope that our paths may cross again at some future date. Of course, they may feel exactly the opposite and do all that they can to avoid us!
It was a breezy day, blowing at F6 from the SSW but the direction of the channel between Orust ...

When I disabused them of this they sort of lost interest but did ...
... grey skies and with little wind. We did manage to sail for some of the time, as the wind picked up to a SW F4l but eventually our direction was such that it wasn’t worth the effort so we reverted to the engine again.
