Day 1
Wow! What a day!
Today I set off from Hamble just after 1 pm having only finished the jobs that needed finishing on Alchemy 2 hours before!
Firstly, thank you to everyone who came to wish me off from land and boat I really appreciate it.
Secondly I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated to my just giving page! We have already raised a sum of £490. Thank you!
Now I am safely moored in Haslar Marina who have been really helpful on the first night of my trip.
