It was a shame to leave BC. What a fantastic place but the weather was slowly moving in and we had to find the next window possible to get south before the real strong SW breeze started.

We motored down the channel out of BC and was playing the forecast by ear.If the wind dropped down a bit we would go direct to SF and if the 40kt TWS stayed as forecast we would stop in at Newport, Oregon. Thats what we did.

The crew for the trip was: Axel , Paul Larsen, Kai weeks and me.

Great sailing conditions all the way down the coast really.It did not warm up however until we got very close to Cabo. Wind coming in at the start of the trip was due to go on the nose and super strong if were did not make it out ahead. We just squeezed passed it as the breeze swung.

On route we came across a tug and tow in the dark which was v...

Well what a race. With a strong wind forecast and big sea state we knew it was going to be hard. There was lots of good competition including the ex-prince de britane 50.

We finished the race and also drank all of the rum barrel at the awards evening.

Cowes round Ouessant race is a great course. We had nice conditions for pushing the MOD and had some glamour sailing. Start was light and Pheado got some lucky breeze which gave them a head start out off Portland. Close race.
