The system went thru and left the fleet a BIG seaway and not much puff. Luckily we managed to just hang onto the back end of it and have a bit of breeze down the coast. A shame the rest of the fleet got becalmed off channel island. Kudos to the 3 boats who stuck it out to the deadline. Not easy conditions.
Trying conditions on the way home too, 3-5 at twa 180. So a long Ol motor sail A little bit of puff in the gulf allowed for a 18nm sail. With 5 litres of diesel left we got the red bus back in her home by 4am.
