2 weeks in

A big shout out to Derek Hathaway who is now 2 weeks into his epic solo sail around Britain to raise funds for Rainbow Living!
 
The stream of easterlies early on led to slow advancement along the south coast, with port calls at Poole, Portsmouth, Littlehampton, and Newhaven, then on to Dover and Ramsgate, where big tides boosted his speed over the ground to as much as 10 knots at points! Over the weekend Derek crossed the Thames, approaching Harwich via the Medusa channel, then sailed up the Orwell and is currently sheltering from strong winds in Ipswich Haven Marina. When the winds abate, Derek will press on to Lowestoft and then Wells-next-the-Sea.
 
Thank you Derek for keeping us updated with your progress, it’s great to hear that both you and Thalmia are doing well!
