Woke up to my first Toodle-oo! update this morning on day 3 of their voyage.
“Had a rough start to the passage with winds running 25kts and 4-6ft choppy seas. Running with double reefed main and reefed jib and still doing over 8kts. As a result our, our first 24 hour run was 185 miles – 35 miles further than expected!
“Had a close call with a fishing boat at 3am yesterday morning – he wasn’t listening to his VHF. Managed to get his attention when only 100 yards away!
“Wet and queezy but otherwise all good aboard Toodle-oo!”
