Trans Atlantic Success

Post  transcendence on Thu Jun 16, 2011 3:30 pm

"Transcendence" is now in Grenada in the windward Islands.
Sailed from Ireland to Portugal, Morocco, Canary Islands and on to Barbados.
left very late (Nov 19th) got beaten up in Biscay.
5 days beating into F 5/6 and then a full storm with winds sustained at 45 knots and long squalls of 60+ knots.
Sprayhood damaged by green over deck, cockpit filled 3 times and tiller broke.
Pulled into Portugal for repairs and after that pretty good.
Did Canaries to Barbados in 26 days.
Some great cruising in the Grenadines and flew home.
Back out in November for more Caribbean cruising.
"Transcendence " is a really great yacht.
