S2#21. Whipped by a Storm’s Tail – How does the Leopard 45 cope?


@Barefoot Doctors Sailing – Come Barefoot with us as we explore Corsica on our Leopard 45 sailing catamaran. This week we round the north tip of Corscia and get whipped by the tail of the well known Med storm, the Mistral! Gusts of 35 knots, boat speed to 11.2 knots and unfurling Code 0 in a squall… Along with discovering more lovely gems of the Med, great wines and lovely towns.

Captains Tips this week is on how to use the engines without the steering wheel to control the boat in marinas and when anchoring – REALLY IMPORTANT stuff….

Binge watch and come barefoot with us as we travel and explore the planet, mostly from the water but sometimes through the minds of others as we provide aid and support where needed through the amazing TUFMINDS solutions!

The free TUFMINDS program is released as a smartphone program under the Exqisit Life Foundation Charity, a registered not for profit and requires financial support to fund the free program. TUFMINDS saves lives by intervening at the point of suicide and pulling everyone to higher levels of mental resilience, wellbeing and functioning. it also creates better attitudes, resilience and coping – all very important for sailors facing difficult situations at sea.
