Well you can never be sure what's going to happen, but, I am going to give leaving here a good try later today! I just have to get the fresh food in, and maybe find a bit of paraffin (this has proved more difficult than I thought). still have enough for a couple of months though so no prob. Have escape routes close by, could still go to Herrio as haven't been there yet. The Plan A is to head for Cape Verde (stop?) then across to Barbados, Granada, Other depending on wind etc. Will be posting posn's so they will be available on the blog. I know you all wish me luck, I,ll be touching wood myself all the way across guaranteed.
