Plymouth to Lisbon

I recently delivered an Oceanis 50 from Plymouth to Lisbon. We set off one day ahead of the ARC fleet and made excellent time down to Bayona. Biscay was friendly for the most, but it did blow up to over 35kts as we approached Finisterre; at this point I was very glad to be on board a 50fter with the wind behind us! Bayona to Lisbon was very calm and the typical Northerlies were nowhere to be seen.

Unfortunately we didn't spot any whales as we went over the shelf but we did see hundreds of Dolphins. For those that are interested here is a short video showing some of the highlights of the trip:


I hope you enjoy it!

Pete

Re: Plymouth to Lisbon

Thanks for posting ! Beautifully made video . Just what I needed to watch to convince myself to get out despite the bad weather blues and continue working on our little boat.
