We’re off

by Adrian on November 24, 2014

Finally we started our transatlantic trip. After being wind delayed yesterday it was nice to leave in the sunshine and cheers from the onlooking crowd.

160 yachts crossed the start line with no problems and we’ve now been sailing down the island of Las Palmas towards the open ocean.

It was an amazing feeling slipping the dock lines and heading out of the marina knowing we’re not going to be on dry land again for another three weeks – and then it’d be around the world in the Caribbean.

We’ll be totally self sufficient and will be eating into the mountains of food we’ve packed away and using water made from our water maker.

So far it’s clear, there’s a reasonable swell and all in looking good for the start of the passage. Now we just have to tend the boat, keep ourselves alive, head south then west.

More updates will follow posted from the sat phone.
