Cliffs of Dover

We left Cowes at 18:00 in the rain and had a pleasant sail down the Solent past old Forts and numerous freighters. The former Volvo Ocean racer, Camper, sailed past us with 12kn speed and quickly disappeared in the distance.
Later the wind calmed down and we ran the engine for a while. By now we have a nice southerly breeze, have the gennaker up and just passes the white cliffs of Dover. The line up of freighters on the horizon is quite impressive and fun to follow. The new crew is having a great time in the sun.
