This is a redo (take 2) of an earlier video.

It took three nights and nearly three days for Snow Gum to take us from Milford Haven to Cherbourg. She sailed beautifully, including through some tough conditions. Look at the wind angles she was holding in lumpy seas. Listen to how quiet it is, piloting from inside.

The trip went well. We had scary-big head-on seas tacking around Land’s End, just east of the TSS. Plenty of water over the bow on occasions. The wind angle relative to swell direction while on port tack made for a rollercoaster ride, at night. 😆

For Carolyn and me (Rick), watching this video highlights how good this design is and emphasises the three part saying from our recent ‘For Sale’ video – ‘This is the perfect time for us to keep the boat. And it’s the perfect time to sell the boat. And it’s the perfect time for someone to buy the boat.’ 😃

Regards from Rick and Carolyn. 🙂
