The Voyage Crew set 5 square sails plus staysails and jib which means we are now totally under sail with no engine assisting. All voyage crew, including the 5 wheelchair users on board where involved in bracing yards and hauling halyards. Sailing through squall’s, showers and sun making good progress towards south coast of England.
