Concerted effort to finish setting up the rig and storing/securing for sea. It is a navigational sadness that one has to depart St Valery sur Somme within 2 hours preceding high water. We departed 1535 (HW being 1707.) This, of course, means that the tidal stream is against if heading north to Boulogne. That, plus a complete lack of wind, had us motoring hard to escape the furious tidal streams in the baie de la Somme and then at a somewhat easier speed to make progress to Boulogne.
Very sad to leave St Valery sur Somme. The way it is silting up, we wonder if we will ever manage to return.
A slightly sad look back as we depart. I think we will remember the lovely people we met there as much as the lovely town itself.
We arrived and were secure alongside, rafted outside 3 other yachts in Boulogne by 0130.
