to go which should get us in during the early hours of Tuesday (tomorrow)
morning local time. The past 24 hours has given us some of the best sailing
of the entire trip, especially during today. Perfectly clear blue skies
with 25kts of wind from the ENE and building seas - what more could you wish
for. The boat is in her element and right now the crew is pretty happy to.
have been passing through huge swathes of a mustard coloured weed floating on
the water today. We first noticed this about 3 days ago but the closer we have
got to land the more prolific it has become. Not sure what all of this is
and can't decide if it is friend or foe! We will need to google it when full
comms return tomorrow.
me this trip has been about many things but one stands out. Being the main
dealer in the UK for the Moody range of yachts that are built in Germany, it was
a unique chance to get some firsthand experience of how the Moody 41AC would
cope with an offshore trip across the Atlantic. You should know as
much as possible about the products that you sell and with a yacht the only way
to do that is to sail them and live aboard them for an extended period. Without
trying to be biased I am impressed! The performance, ease
of handling, comfort and livability really do make this boat
work very well but more about that from the skipper. For pure sailing and fun
this has to be one of the best crossings that I have done.
hope you have enjoyed reading this blog. We will finish up tomorrow with some
facts and figures once we are in and a piece from our esteemed skipper and
