Sailing the Medieval Pilgrims Route
Southampton, Fowey, Ile d'Ouessant, La Coruna
06 November 2019
(2 days) Day sailing along South UK Coast.
(1 day) Keeping a weather eye to hop over to NW France.
Refresh the breads, cheeses and hams waiting for safe weather...
(3 days) Take the coat-tails of a low across the Biscay.
Where shall we stop? Wherever efficient and safe use of winds and tides take us.
How long shall it take? Depends how well we trim the sails.
It's a sailing yacht between ports and anchorages.
What do we do? Take watches, helm, trim, hoist & practice/ fine tune coastal/ ocean navigation. Cook, clean & sleep.
Take photos, listen to music, read a book, write a book.
(Once in La Coruna, the following week I'm walking the 110km Camino Ingles to Santiago de Compostela.
You're welcome to come along, or stay and feast on the sights and cuisine of Galicia.)
Navigation/ Passage Planning...
Isn't it late in the year to cross Biscay? Aren't there many gales?
Yes! it gives us an excuse to wait in fantastic harbours for weather windows.
So... in between the gales: with patience.
Like normal: comfortably, quickly, efficiently, safely.
Except those with a penchant for lobster,chips & cognac...
costs are shared: food, fuel, gas, moorings.
This is not a commercial venture or commercial vessel.
