It was pretty good out of Jersey and as far as the Ecrehoes, practically doing full chat. However, the middle 15 miles or so were rather lumpy with a 'hard' short sea which I think must have been down to wind against tide and slowed us to 18 kts. The wind was also stronger further north being about F4. Towards Alderney it calmed down a bit and was much better once we'd turned the corner into Braye and we had wind in our favour.
Shame to have missed Avocet, I even rushed round to the Braye Beach as soon as we arrived, but it must have been too late.
