Just wanted to update the thread to say we've crossed safely! Took 3 days (but only 2 nights which was great) we managed to sail most of it but needed to motorsail the last day as the winds dropped. Had no issues at all, was a lovely trip. Went direct from Camaret to La Coruna. Kept outside of the shipping
lanes but was good to know so many ships were in radio
contact if we needed them.
The gribs were very true to their word, couldn't fault the weather
so we got in with no issues.
Very proud to have done this with just the two of us (my girlfriend and myself). We got a good watch system in place from day one and that allowed us to get sleep and stay fresh.
Thanks again to everyone who offered advice on this thread, it all really helped.
Right, time for some more seafood!
