Antigua to San Francisco 2018
We started on 22 March 2018 and arrived in San Francisco on 14th May 2018. Over 6000nm. Very lucky all in all with the weather. Lots of motoring was had and managed to get past the bad sections of the trip with good conditions. The hardest section being from Cabo, Mexico up to San Diego, USA. This 1000nm section is hard on the nose and very bad sea state. Sea sickness conditions. We punched through it in 7 days and arrived with no problems. Downwind from the carib at the start of the trip was windy and fast but getting held up in the canal for over a week waiting for the slot really stretched out the trip. This then meant loosing crew and doing crew change in PV, Mexico. So another delay to the trip but fun to see PV and friends there.
Combination of crew: Helena Darvelid, Jac Vincent, Anthony Rezzoug, Nikolai Tollborg, Javier, Lia Ditton and Bernice Charrez. Great crew and nice trip.
