PCP will become famous soon enough
They struck the rock motoring. They have sailed out Falmouth to the Scilly Islands (that's on this leg they had hit the rock), got some disturbed seas at Lizard Point and then returned to Falmouth, motorsailing with a genoa and 12K of ap wind on the starboard quarter.

They don't mention if the second crew used their sails, but when you charter a sailboat it is supposed to sail the boat.

The third crew was sailing because they have broached when they were already delivering the boat on the return trip, near the base.
