Destiny spent 2019 cruising to Northern Spain and back from 04.06.19 to 28.09.19. She crossed Biscay overnight from La Rochelle to Bilbao and returned overnight up the West coast of France. Apart from a storm at the beginning and strong winds for the last two weeks, the weather was generally superb with little rain, most of which was at night.
In all she was away from her home port at La Roche Bernard for 117 days, of which she was laid up afloat in Getxo (Bilbao) for 59 days, and sailed 964.06 Nm.
Some great memories, especially of N. Spain and its very hospitable people and wonderful food and drink, superb scenery, no wind (for most of the time!) and much use of the engine. No real hiccups, other than a near grounding that could have cost the keel, and shredded genoa that has resulted in a £1500 bill for replacement!
Would not have changed anything – hope to do it again!
Destiny stayed afloat but laid up until 06.01.20, and is now ashore until early May.
