Bubb completes qualifier
Without boring you too much with details, I left La Trinite late last Thursday evening, passed to the north of Ile de Groix just off Lorient and then headed off into 30 odd knots from the southwest, which I battled all the way to Cape Finisterre. Then I made the turn north and blasted across Biscay up to the Fastnet, after which I had great surfing in a big swell all the way to Lands End before finishing my 1,000 miles in Plymouth .
With no real dramas, I checked virtually all the systems and without pushing too hard put the boat through her paces. We now have the weekend to work on the boat over here before heading to St Malo on Tuesday to prepare for the race start on 29 October. When I have a bit more time on my hands I'll take you through a guided video tour of the boat and give you the latest news.
Many thanks to my major sponsors: Kenmore Homes, Kenmore Property Group, Aggmore Property and Gill.
