All is well onboard Kite. We are blasting along the SW coast of England after having had the strange feeling of returning to the Solent, our local sailing grounds, only to leave straight away again. And, with the strong flood tidal current into the Needles Channel, the Solent didn’t want us to leave again.
We are settled into routine of sail changes, navigation, repairs and savoring the fine freeze dried offerings. In addition to the race, we’ve enjoyed the wildlife and natural world along the way – dolphins, a soaring fulmar, gulls, and the stunning sliver of the moon that rises now in the middle of the night.
