La Coruna to Baiona (9 th September - 11th September)

Paul and Keiko headed for home on the 7th and the Halsall family were reunited on board GSB for the first time in 2 months. Big Jack stayed with us to sail round Cape Finisterre.

We left Coruna at lunchtime on the 9th, it had been a really good stay. The winds were light and forecast to stay light so we knew the trip was going to be steady albeit with a fair swell of 2.5m running. The trip was uneventful and pleasant with crystal clear skies, shooting stars and loads of dolphins to keep the nightwatches entertained.
Both Ella and Jack stood their watches for the first time. Jack did midnight to 0100 am with Selma and Big Jack and Ella came up at 0300 am with me; both of them were game on which is not bad for a 7 and 9 year old, well done guys - a good start all round. Selma did OK as well - not bad for a 38 year old.

A bit of seasickness brought on by excessive chocolate consumption more than anything else, a nice westerly breeze and we had arrived in Sanxenxho. We were now out of the Bay and into the Atlantic for the first time.

The following day we made the short trip south to our old favourite port of Baiona.
