My thoughts work backwards; the most recent first. I did not suffer from Channel Fever during the closing days of this race. I would not allow myself. Upon finishing however I allowed myself the luxury of thinking about a bacon baguette at Tiffin’s in Cowes.
The finish was at the Lizard, Cornwall, 150 miles from the dock in Cowes.
We finished at about 5 o’clock in the morning and arrived in Cowes just past midnight; in time for last call. The following morning after a shower and shave, it was off to Tiffin’s where I savored just such as delight along with a large coffee.
There are more stories connected to this adventure. Some appropriate to be repeated and some that will remain on the boat.
