I may be leaving a few days late, but I have my French courtesy flag all ready, and we'll be touching the coast of France sometime on Friday. So far the plan is to sail across, drink a bottle of their cheapest wine, spend the night and sail right back to England. I then have two more weeks of work, and the trip to Hamburg begins. What happens once in Hamburg is still up for debate, however I have my fingers crossed that lady luck will appear, and I can start moving south, singlehanded as planned.
Thanks to you-know-who for the artwork :)
P.S Happy Independence Day to the American readers!
