Atlantic Crossing

This crossing was the pinical of the end of the time in the Mediterranean.  After the French canals I had prepared the boat for long distance cruises out of contact with maintenance facilities.  The time on the Atlantic coast of Spain and the trip to Madiera soon souted out the sailing ability of the crew who left in Morocco.
Piers joined in Morocco and was a great asset right across the Atlantic.  Easy going, willing to learn and a great help above and below deck.
We left the Canaries a week before the ARC started to get out of their way but the wind was not there so we struggled to find wind heading further south than the fleet.  We sailed a much greater distance and only arrived a few days before them although we did have a much safer and smoother passage.

 The blog of the crossing is here but no different from the following pages here...
