From the early morning on we did numerous manoeuvres, they all went very well. However our essential thing was missing: wind.
There was only one patch just before Dover were we sailed with about 11 kn.  Apart from that it is again a nerve-racking exercise in low wind sailing.

Currently we are passing the TSS of Dover.
Having enjoyed the scenery of the Isle of Wight yesterday and the cliffs of Dover today, we are now looking forward to a tricky passage along the coast of France, Belgium and the Netherlands. We hope to catch some thermal pressure there.
