[KensBlog]A Smooth Passage from France to Spain

Greetings all!

If you are reading this you should have received a book-length blog entry from me yesterday. My apologies for that.

For the next few weeks I am going to experiment with sending daily blog entries. I ordinarily wouldn’t do this, but as you saw yesterday, the long blog entries are a problem.

Anyway .. I think you find that the daily entries are a lot more fun. They allow you to feel much more immersed in our voyage. That said, if you find them annoying you can always UNSUBSCRIBE to the email feed by clicking the link at the bottom of this email.

Best wishes,

Ken Williams

Here is the first of the shorter daily postings…


We have arrived on Menorca! We had a perfect twenty-six hour passage. The first couple hours were a bit rough, but then it settled down and the rest of the ride couldn’t have been better.

We found a beautiful anchorage on Menorca, and I’ll talk more about that tomorrow. For now — I am headed to sleep. Each of Roberta and I only got about three hours of sleep last night.

As soon as we wake our plan is to drop the tender and visit the nearby town.

Here is a short video I made showing how calm the seas were:

    David — we are already in Spain. As I mentioned in my last blog entry, we were planning to go to Antibes but passed it by at the last second. We’ll get there sooner or later. The only reason we bypassed it was that we’d had some bad experiences with wind and rolling while at Cap Ferrat and perceived that the protection in the anchorage at St Tropez would be better.

    Thank you!
