Blue sky, sparkling sea and brilliant white bergs
After lunch of delectable fresh baked bread risen with our, now patented, electric blanket technique, we went to get the anchor up and had another minor crisis. The starboard throttle was flashing red and wouldn't work. Luckily the port one was fine so we motored out of the bay and set sail for the northern end of Bear Island. With the engine off we opened up the control box and pressed the error cancel button whereupon everything sprung back into life. Yelps of joy as we ran downwind dodging the bergs at a safe, genoa only, pace.
For now the boat appears to be fully functional and we can sit back and enjoy a fine, sunny downwind sail amongst the islands, mountains and icebergs.
