I'm glad to be in. At noon yesterday I was off the Manacles, 7 miles from Falmouth after a wonderful sail for the previous 24 hours. Wing and wing, two reefs in the main and 1/2 the genoa poled out, a full moon. glorious sailing, easy and comfortable. Lot's of ship traffic to keep me attentive the AIS and the radar. 156 miles noon-to-noon. For the trip; 1,297 miles sailed, 100 more that a direct course getting around the High. 10.3 days, an average of 126 miles a day.

Today is cold, raining and blowing with more of the same in the forecast. It's good to be tied to a dock.
