Destination Azores first stop Ramsgate

After months of preparation including ditching the Aries and replacing with much lighter home made (by Kiwi Chris) Hebredien, we (me Tony and Murray, cast off from Chatham on Monday morning and despite numerous cock-ups made Ramsgate before the storm arrived. Stayed put today with the wind howling and sorted out various jobs on the boat and got reasonably ship shape. Tomorrow may have enough of a weather window to make Dover. Will update properly from laptop soon but this from phone.
