Biscay Between Storms - Falmouth to La Coruna
"She woke me in the early hours after seeing a strange combination of lights. They turned out to be quite a large vessel, not under command, attended by a smaller vessel, possibly a tug. When we were quite close, the larger vessel suddenly turned on all its lights - decklights, floodlights, and the like - and started moving towards us, so we had to alter course. Eventually we got clear of them and I went back to bed. Our intention was to head well outside Ushant, and then straight down to La Coruna, while reserving the option to head into Brest if the weather took a turn for the worse. In the end it wasn't necessary. The Navtex continued pumping out good forecasts until we were well into the Bay."
