Auriga departing England for Madeira!

We had a refreshing and productive stay on the South Coast. Using the experience gained during the "shake-down", we have made many small improvements that will make life at sea safer and more comfortable: we have sealed a small but annoying leak, added extra bolts to secure the forehatch, repaired the small #3 jib, replaced leaking faucets, and generally improved the ergonomics both on deck and down-below.

Further, the weather seems to have improved, too, and the long-range forecasts look promising.

Next stop - Madeira!
