The weather was worse than forecast across Biscay with force 3-4 becoming a force 6, gusting to 7. As Biscay novices, five days and four nights of this was pretty horrendous. Lotty was seasick much of the time, but was amazing at looking after Hector and Phoebe-Plum. I sailed the boat and probably got the equivalent of an hour of sleep a day.
This video is one of the calmer, nicer days.
