As said at the end of day 40, we were in a new anchorage with only 1 review. It turns out it was a bit rubbish for the conditions we were in, and it was a bit of a rockey night.
You can see in the picture below, these were not exactly glassy conditions.
We were up early because of the rocking, and decided to head off before breakfast in the direction of a shortlist of better anchorages based on the conditions.
The wind was having quite a “mad one” and flipped the dinghy over while we were beating through wind waves that were breaking over the deck.
We sailed using a mixture of Genoa and mizen, leaving the main down, and the first anchorage we passed looked great so headed in.
Much more pleasant location in these winds, I expect we will be here for a day or 2.
Boat jobs & relaxation
Let’s skip the boat jobs part and just say that Adam managed to drench the inside of the boat with salt water while trying to wash the deck (the window was open)…
We tried out the water, it’s still quite cold, but went and found the anchor with our wetsuits on.
