This morning, Nordlys passed the Strait of Dover on her way to Santander. It took us 4 days to cross the North Sea from Den Helder, all full and by.
The south of England was waiting for us with a warm blue sky and a nice thermical wind which pushed our old lady up to 9 kts along the coast on a flat sea, beating up a modern fiberglass yacht on the way. The wind dropped in the afternoon and allowed us to do some maintenance on the ship. Tonight we’ll let Greenwich meridian behind us. We’ll be on ‘My Ocean’ soon, where the trade wind will blow us to Spain.
Wish you have good days like we have on board Fairtransport’s fleet, fellow readers. Greetings from a happy captain!
