Escapado - 2nd December
Our wettest day yet: hoods up, salopettes on and a lot of chocolate to get us through the shifts, we embraced the wet weather. In fact myself, Tom and Ed completed our second bucket shower assisted by Charlie‘s constant supply of buckets of sea water and Donato’s smooth helming - we freshened up well mid storm! As the evening shifts started, crew watch out bought the squals with them. Lightning surrounded us at one point, phones went in the oven and we hove to, sitting out the storm below deck. The watches were intense however it was some of the best and most exciting helming of the trip!
