We left IJmuiden at 10.00 and arrived at 14.15. It was impossible to sail as there was no wind as you can see from the pics. We saw 4 porpoises feeding in a wind lane of froth. Corry saw a seal and thought that she may have seen a spout from a whale. The weather today the 2/5/15 was hot. It was a grand motor to here. The weather is expected to get worse until next Friday. We will stay until then as being on a pension we can wait for kind winds.
We had a drink in the sun and a meal at the Havenpaleis, which was tasty, being fish. I am in bed now! 20.30 Dutch time and knackered. Oh yes, after we put up the cockpit tent , the zip broke and needs repairing on Monday.
We have a hydrovane which great for mileage but no good manoeuvring in a marina due to the rudder. I will try to take it off until a long trip.
