Having been at sea for 5 days, the team have ducked into the historical safe haven Port of Baiona to allow a weather system to pass and 10 metre swell to die down as a front of 40 knots moves across the bay of biscay.
The small town of Baiona goes from a modest population of 10,000 in the winter to 50,000 in the summer. Whilst set up for plenty of holidayers in season, it’s an unlikely stop for travellers in the winter. Other than a place of refuge for sailors looking to take on the bay of biscay.
With 750nm miles left to sail to Ipswich the crew hope to set off again in the next 24 hours once the seas state is reduced.
