They did fantastically, old record 77 days their target 60, did it in 32. Mind you the wind gods were in their favour, the wind seemed to follow them all round the UK coast.
We went out of Dover on Sunday and found them just south of Ramsgate having come from Felixstowe, leaving 04:00 that morning - we had a Yachts and Yachtng photographer with us, he got some great shots, and we got rides in the boat including Mrs Smithyyy who got a cup of tea brewed up for her (small gas cooker in a custom made box hanging under the thwart). They've done various mods - like the thwart modifed to allow for a quick exit in the event of capsize while asleep in the bilge, proper slab reefing ike a yacht, and a thankfully explained rather than demonstrated method of dong a "number two" while hiking over the transom. Then a very friendly and helpful Dover Port Control allowed them in via the East entrance to come ashore for a quick cake and coffee before they went on their way, next stop Lymington.
But seriously a fantastic achievement, including several legs of two or three nights each, 1500 miles in 32 days including stopovers (they reckoned on an average while at sea of 3.5 knots made good towards the destination). So today there's been a party at Weymouth now I magine they are at home having a very long sleep
