8th July 2011

After all of the crew had boarded we went through a safety briefing from our skipper David, ready to set off on Tenacity's first round Britain adventure.

We set out for the sea lock at about about 3.00pm after a little waiting in the bottom lock, navigated out of the Lune Channel.  Behind us we could see a fierce black storm cloud.  Then it was a straight crossing to Ramsey on the Isle of Man - well almost, as we had to carefully navigate through a few windfarms that are now springing up all around our coasts.

The Fierce Black Storm Cloud!

We all then had the experience of night sailing and in watches we took turns at sailing and navigating and sleeping!
