Serafina - Log Day 1 - Plymouth to Falmouth

Our rally start day began with a good breakfast and a quick tidy up on the boat.  We headed off to the start line around 0815 ready for the 0900 start.  It began raining prior to the start and continued to get worse during the morning.The weather was not kind to us and we had to battle the wind and seas until mid afternoon when the day started to brighten up.  The wind however was still not in our favour.  We sailed on without turning to the engine for assistance and crossed the finish line in Falmouth harbour at 2200.
