Heading south

Kite and her happy crew spent another day of dieting blasting down the Celtic Sea to Land’s End and then further south to a mark off Brest.  Overnight and then around mid day the Celtic Sea gave us a proper welcome with up to 35-37kts and a confused sea that certainly wasn’t small.  The conditions were variable enough to let us practice reefing and unreefing and changing between the J1 and J2.  As Wednesday ends, we are blasting across “la manche” with the 0 up.  But it is feeling lonely and the J2 will soon join it as a stay sail.  

The next couple of days look a bit lighter which will give a bit of relief to our sore muscles and bruises, but might delay the steak and fries that have been on our minds.
