The tiny Chat Noir set sails a couple weeks ago from Les Sables d’Olonne (FR) is heading to La Coruña (SP), then Madera, Azores, and wayback to Les Sables d’Olonne, his port of call. His master is now en route to Madera and Funchal, solo sailing, and roughly half way after 3 days of navigation.

They faced during the first part of the trip 40kts with 5m breaking waves when turning Fisterra Head, along la Costa de la Muerte, but the ship performed very well upwind with only one reef in the mainsail, jumping above big waves and the foam with average speed of more than 4 kts. of the ship leaving the tiny harbour of Corme, heading to Camariñas, with 35kts but in sheltered bay.
