Hugh Brayshaw, first amateur nought to 50 on the same leg

Publie le 07/06/2017

"Leg 1 was pretty exciting, it had everything from 0 to 50 knots! Thats the windiest I have ever sailed in, trying to get through the front, that was absolutely mental! You just couldn’t do anything but just try and get through it."

“I thought the mast was going to come down last night the conditions were so violent- I’d made a plan in my head that I would go down below, I know where the hacksaw is, on the way down tell everyone on the VHF radio that the rig had come down and then get on with it. I was so convinced something was going to blow up, it was so mental - I remember saying to myself oh there’s the 40 knots then, oh a bit more, a bit more, then there’s the hail, the rain and monstrous seas - the boat throwing me everywhere!”

“Fortunately I didn’t break anything too major, there are a few minor jobs and I definitely need some rest and food. I’m really looking forward to the next leg and back into the Biscay!”

Rook: “I experienced 52 knots and thought to myself, what in the hell are we doing out here!
