Monos arrive

Jackdaw, Bombardino, Blue Jay and Chione have arrived in Lowestoft.

The crews all agree that this was a pretty tricky leg, rough seas with winds gusting 20-40 knots. In fact Matt on Belladonna was catapulted from his bunk as the boat dug into the waves. The passage provided boats with surfing at 17 knots in 40 knots of winds and a badly damaged spinnaker.

By contrast the next three are strugging with light winds and adverse tides and will not finish until well into tomorrow.
