The southwesterly gale is pushing us through the Channel in 7 to 9 knots. We expect to pass Isle of Wight tonight and be out in the North Sea tomorrow night. Two days ago when north in th Bay of Biscay we had the normal drizzle during the night, when daylight came everything was colored brown, later in the day it started raining, the rain looked like Fanta a yellowish brown color, I got pictures I will post later. We passed a couple of tankers the same night, If there are any ideas out there on what it might be, please respond. The nights are getting shorter and temperatures are falling, we are getting closer to home.
Update Day 30, 29 June
