Whitby to Amble via Nigeria

(previous map error due to site not believing Whitby existed)

storm 11 °C

Left Whitby about 10 and sailed to Amble a distance of about 60miles. Wind quite strong about force6 so reefed down quite a lot and flew along at about 8 knots until wind died mysteriously about halfway there, then equally mysteriously the engine died, leaving us wallowing around. Called coastguard and asked them to standby but in the event started engine again. Wind returned in strength so sailed on to Amble without problem. Nice place by the look of it as we are going to be storm bound here for a day certainly.
