Sailing off Antibes
In Antibes, preparing to set sail for the Island of Elba. Out for warm up sail at 12 noon. Out past islands round to Cannes. Interesting having a wheel instead of tiller. Much easier really. We all tried our hands at the helm. Laurie has least experience, having only dinghy sailed before. Bill took some time to adjust. We decided to motor through gap between islands and Cannes to return as we had a radio call from Geoff asking us to present passports to port police. Good sail after gap.
