Below are a couple of photos of those that managed to get a spot on the final leg home.
This was our by far longest adventure and made the return quite special. Combining that with the beautiful atmosphere of Bermuda, America’s Cup racing, J-Class regatta and perfect sailing conditions across the Gulf stream created a hard to beat package.
Due to the consistent south-westerly wind we made the almost 700nm trip in just under 5 days – a record for us; and that without much sweat or hard work.
Apart from the consistent challenge to fully charge our house bank and the ripped gennaker, we did not have any technical challenges and instead enjoyed the frequent whale and dolphin visits.
All is good on board of Tioga.
