Did not make Lundy as a manageable F5-6 turned into 8 gusting 9 as we came round Mort Point. Mountainous and chaotic are the only words that spring to mind. Followed by a 3 hour hike up the channel to Portishead because we could not face a night in Ilfracombe
and no other harbours were going to be possible due to low tide.
Good character building stuff as my passenger (who had his first rib experience) said after an 8 hour day of the Bristol Channel at its gnarly best.
Now I know how my socks feel when they are in the washing machine. Hot bath here I come !
