Girolle - Day 6 - back on the high seas

After over 24 hours of sheltering from Storm Miguel in La Coruna we are back sailing on course for Bayona. We are heading right into 15-17 knots of wind, the wind direction should be more favourable once we start turning the corner of northern Spain and head South down to Bayona. The sea is pretty lumpy today and we are riding some impressive waves. Dave has been trying to stave off sea sickness and is feeling rather queasy.
The storm battered La Coruna all afternoon yesterday and well into the night with gale force winds, torrential rain and thunder. We barely ventured from the boat so didn’t even get to sample anything of the locality. Before we left today we had a quick chat to our friends on Lyonie, they were looking considerably more refreshed than when we saw them yesterday. We also squeezed in a last minute coffee with our Poli Poli friends. Looks like most of the ARC boats in La Coruna will set sail either later today or tomorrow.
For now it’s time to carry on sailing
