She's sailing!

After five days of hard core working, we finally managed to set sail out of Harvey Vale as the sun set. I am in a internet cafe in Carriacou and dont have much time, but just wanted the regular readers to know that we are up and running. There is still loads of painting to be done, but we will do that in Antigua when we arrive. The weather is not great and winds are forecast to be pretty strong and squally tomorrow. Our new sails may have to be reefed but we are aiming to take off towards Antigua later today. After sunset we sailed up to Windward, where the yacht was made and she flew the whole way. Will hope to tell you about our trip early next week. We have just over 300 miles to cover. Wish us luck.......
