Sailing the Atlantic, Cruising the Caribbean
"Scrutineering complete, we set sail from Torquay in very light conditions. The trip to Crosshaven was uneventful but frustrating, as the winds were either non-existant or on the nose. We arrived somewhere in the middle of the fleet on handicap. After a few days of Irish hospitality we set off for Treguier and it was then, about 30 miles out in F6-7, that we had our problem. Sarah was steering, which was fairly hard work in those conditions, and I was down at the chart table, when the boat suddenly luffed up. Sarah shouted down that she had lost all steering. "
