We had a fun start and then everyone sailed through us ! Really great to get out with the crew for our first sail together so we used the time and conditions to put in and take out reefs. There was an alert called in the evening about a strong squall, so the practice really helped. Covered 173 miles in our first 24 hours which was better than we had thought. Two of the crew, Henry and Mícheál, are relatively new to sailing and are a bit of a challenge to the old farts brigade with their energy, perspective and skills. Polly got off the mark with a lovely chicken curry last night and baked our first two loaves of bread so we are not going hungry, especially if we catch any of those fish he has been luring all day.
