The 1st of the autumn 2012 milebuilder passages to the Channel Islands has been successfully concluded with all candidates safely logging up to 400 miles in varying weather conditions. Highlights included: Common and White Beaked dolphin sightings, mid channel, both ways; consistent boat speeds breaking 10 knots on occasions; excellent passage planning and pilotage, notably into St Peter Port in very poor visibility.
The 2nd passage to the Scilly Isles has now finished with all candidates logging more than 300 miles. The passage plan took full advantage of prevailing weather windows and neap tides, clocking up a good number of nights hours on both outbound and return legs.
The 3rd milebuilder passage to the Brittany Coast has now begun with good winds forecast for most of the week.
