In fact we did it twice. Full credit for the crew, on the westbound leg had the 13 Y daughter as crew and on the eastbound the 15 y daughter. Pretty rough weather on the first trip, 12-15 m/s during the day, even tough selected inshore routes, fairly bumpy from time to time. Holding on to the boat with one hand and to the tiller with another, considering more than 200 way points, not practical to navigate with paper-charts, plotter was really needed and the location of the table was working well. Later in the evening wind was not an issue but spent close to 9 hours in the boat, one refuelling stop ashore. Stiff like an old dog after the trips but still best days of this summer,would not change a minute.
