August 28th - "Open water"

Updated: Aug 29, 2022

Well, what a start to my journey.šŸ˜‚

It was a beautiful day yesterday with all my family, friends and supporters.

I left Kilrush knowing I was surrounded by a bubble of love that will protect myself and Waxwing as we sail around the world.

People came from all over to see me off and I was honored, it was difficult to say goodbye to my loved ones but I expected that and as soon as I hit open water I felt alive again.

Waxwing just took off as if to say to meā€¦ at last.šŸ˜Šā›µ

Weather was so fine I cut through the Blasket Islands at sunset and how fitting that the last piece of Ireland I would see was the Dingle peninsula and even saw the graveyard where our lovely Dad is buriedā¤ļø

8,9kn of wind today from the east, and we are on course doing a speed of 4 to 5kn no swell and everything is beautiful.

I donā€™t ask the universe for much but I had asked for a good forecast for Biscay and I got itā€¦ Thank you universešŸŒ 

A huge thanks to everyone that helped me get here.šŸ™

Wishing everyone a beautiful day,

Waxwing out.šŸ˜Šā›µšŸŒŽ
