Team Aparito coming up for air at Great Yarmouth!
The North Sea has certainly thrown everything at us. Sustained 45-50 knots at the top and nothing in the middle.
It’s been emotional. Beat from Shetland was full on, you don’t see that much wind that often.
We’ve had no weather info for the whole North Sea sea as file got accidentally deleted in the mayhem . So stuck close to rhum line which seemed to pay off.
We’re astounded that Tubs (our boat) is still holding onto her position. North Sea is now playing nicely, 12-15 knots and sunshine with the usual nasty chop.
We’re bringing the old girl home, just one more corner to go. Hang in there Tubs!
