North Biscay

by Adrian on September 23, 2010

The end is in sight! Not literally, but less than a day away now.

I’m currently huddled on the companionway steps at 0400 keeping warm on my watch. We’re 20 miles from the north western tip of Brittany. I can see the Ushant lighthouse in the distance and presumably since we’re near UK waters it’s started to rain.

We just have to negotiate the Traffic Separation Scheme ahead to avoid the large commercial ships routing around the peninsular then it’s 025deg to Plymouth.

We should arrive around midnight Thursday night.

Wind still slack and from directly behind, but fuel looks good as the following sea has helped our speed and economy.
