Mike reports, "We left Hong Kong at 20:00 today. It was raining and cloudy with 26 kn of wind and still very wet after the typhoon. The boat and crew are happy to sail again and we are doing 10 kn in a NW direction up to Shanghai. We have encountered a lot of traffic leaving Hong Kong. The wind is on the nose but the swell is not too big. We have a very small crew on board with only 3 of us but in this case, less is more, because we all are very motivated to sail again.
