Well that’s it, we’ve finally left

At 5 am on the 20th May, we finally left our home port on our way to the Caribbean, we had a few extra drinks with a few mates on Friday which as always, turned into a bit of a session and we ended up dancing in the local Chinese ( they had a disco). Saturday was spent loading all the last minute items (and removing some) with our trusty mate Dave! We passed on the ownership of our very reliable Honda onto Bob, handed our keys into the marina and settled in for our early start.

Our intended stop for the night was supposed to have been Dartmouth but after 10 hrs of motoring through a thoroughly miserable day and cold weather, we decided to pull into Weymouth, we left at first light and made Dartmouth on Monday
