Radar is a rubbish bit of kit as it has now stopped working.
Across the southern Bay of Biscay we have taken a bit of a hammering with F7
winds from the east and big waves trying to get in to the boat. Biscay's
reputation is intact! The night sky is very clear which partly makes up for
having to keep watch lying down in the spray. If I had one I would be
tempted to get the sextant out. We've had to head southeast to keep the bow
more into the breaking waves. When daylight comes though, we can have a nice
run west along the Spanish coast towards Coruna.
We have a bit of fixing up to do when in port. The battery charging is poor
and we have to keep the generator on more than expected. A wardrobe door in
the forward cabin also got ripped off its hinges during a particularly bad
bounce through a wave. And the radar needs looking at.
