Portishead to Cardiff

Beautiful wind. F4 on the starboard quarter pretty much all the way across. She clocked five and a half knots through the water at one point. Not bad for an old (and pretty) tub.

Going home tomorrow is going to be a different experience. F4 to 5 on the nose, wind over tide.

A little scared. Mostly excited. Glad we've got Ben aboard to help.

I'm lying in my bunk listening to the wind slapping a halyard against the mast. Can't hear it above deck so can't work out how to stop it.

Which is fine. I love the noise. It's like the ticking of a clock. Hypnotic.

This is exactly where I want to be right now.
