The majority of the boats are departing on Tuesday, though a small band of renegade boats left today. As expected, the bigger racing yachts decided to leave, and a few smaller boats also set sail.
The conditions were blowy (a professional sailors term) for a short while. It was very noticeable that the bigger boats glided through the water, whereas some of the smaller boats were already hobby horsing out of the marina.
Later on some of the boats returned, which was confirmed our decision was a good one. We would have hated to have left, and then have had to return again. We’ll be leaving Tuesday whatever the weather.
