What an experiance. Our route was knocked about by the weather, we were knocked about by the wind but after 8 days we got home, an amazing feeling of achievement and lots of great fun along the way.

She performed wonderfully. Had one minor hickup with a warning tell tale on the dash but that was resolved without issue, the boat and the crew took a beating that day and I think she was just sick of it all. BTW I was amazed by the Optimax, average for the whole trip bearing in mind there were 3 crew on board and upto 460 litres of fuel and 50 litres of oil she only burned 1.07 litres per nautical mile with an average speed of 31.8 knots...
