Legato - Log day 11

We grabbed 3 hours sleep and woke to Clare and Charlie waving at us from the Trinity Lightship. Coffee and bacon butties for anyone ready to join in.

Then final goodbyes and promises to keep in touch.

So in the final analysis, what did we think?

I wanted to do the trip as it promised to raise my level of confidence about tackling a Channel crossing and the tides around the Channel Islands.
It absolutely delivered.

I have done a few rallies and the big difference with the ARC Channel Islands cruise was that everyone had the same common goal: To get experience as a skipper of managing the boat on an extended cruise in challenging waters.
These were some of the nicest people I have ever met on a rally. We all got on so well. We have made new friends and all come away better sailors. What more can you ask for?
