At Sea: Finally got away

August 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

Finally got away at 16:25 from Marsden Cove.  Sylvia and David from Kiss were kind enough to come down to the marina to wish us bon voyage.  Unfortunately too much still to do to stop for coffee!

For our first night we had a nearly full moon still waxing and plenty of wind from the SW to keep us going the way we want.  Andrew cooked an excellent meal of roast chicken with a sauce made from Tamarillos – a variation on chicken klitharaki.
