And so we say Farewell....

Well we've finally left after an emotional farewell at the Three Mariners Pub So the.....three mariners ....left this morning at 5am to try and make progress against the dreaded north easterly wind.
After much bobbing about and with help from the boat's St Christopher we have made it safely to Brightlingsea in Essex where we enjoyed a feast of chicken and chips at theYacht Club ... And no less
Tomorrow the forecast is similar so we will try to get to Harwich where the night life is supposed to be spectacular
No real hiccups apart from a hole in the floor of the dinghy which my crew mate Tonny is ably suited to manage by sticking his finger in the hole....he is half Dutch after all
The photo is one of us leaving at 5 this morning taken by an admirer who had stayed up all night in order to capture the moment
