Girolle - Day 4 update

Here we are Wednesday evening, the weather forecast is for a storm coming in over Finisterre at about the time we were due to be there tomorrow before we run down to Bayona. We, along with several other boats have decided to head to Northern Spain and seek shelter in La Coruna whilst the storm passes. Consequently, we are currently motor sailing as fast as we can and are some 60 NM away, we hope to make it fingers crossed by around 5am in the morning, wait for the storm to pass before moving on to Bayona. This was not what we had planned, but the prospect of being thrown around in potentially storm force winds doesn’t appeal when there is a hopefully safer alternative.
On the plus side, we get to add an extra destination to our list.
Whilst Dave was catching up on some rest this afternoon, Andy & I were treated to another Dolphin show. This time the spectacle started with 2 dolphins leaping out of the water alongside the boat. They played for a good 5 minutes, darting across and under the bow and back again easily a dozen or more times, we were completely ‘wowed’ by their entertainment, so much so we almost forgot about the task in hand - helming the boat (shhh, don’t tell Dave!).
Time to sign off and get on with sailing to Coruna.
