This morning we pulled into Roscoff just ahead of a front which is heading across the Atlantic.
We completed our work with Oyster last week in Southampton, whilst also having a fabulous lunch visit from Lilian and Alfie and Carolyn's parents came for a night in the rain. Then we were keen to get moving, the plan was to head west to meet up with Mike and Nicky on ZenAgain who are just about to sail in to Falmouth having left Fremantle a year ago but the wind said NO! So as much as we wanted to welcome them to the UK our desire for some heat and the westerly wind meant we decided to head South.
|Girls that lunch|
|Lovely UK weather in the Hamble|
|Horrid sea at The Casquets off Alderney|
|Lovely sunset and calm sea|
|Raising our French courtesy flag (this flag was last seen in Bora Bora 10 years ago)|
We had a sleep then cleaned up the boat, which ended up being a larger task than we anticipated as the elusive leak at the bow had reappeared; however during the trip Andrew had determined the water was coming in from the light fittings; then through conversations with our warranty manager on arrival we learned that grommets that were supposed to be in the back of the lights were missing so we effectively had 4 holes directly into our forepeak lockers! We are relieved to learn this and the grommets are being shipped out to us immediately.
Then we were off to explore Roscoff in the rain....
