Across the Bay of Biscay
On Sunday 14 October 2018 Moana started her first major voyage since the refit at Fox's and new engine in Southampton.
Included in the crew are Judith, Alistair, Rob, Skipper Alan (to assist us for our first significant offshore trip on board an Oyster 56!) and myself. Risi and Alex from Oxford came to see us off on a cold, and very wet, Sunday morning at Saxon Wharf. At 08.30 the tide was right to pass safely under the Itchen Bridge, filmed by Risi and Alex in case we'd miscalculated the air-draft....) and the adventure was beginning to deliver Moana to Las Palmas to start the ARC+ with Jo, Freddie, Giles and Ray.
First Stop, Portugal.
