Left Eastbourne Marina Photo above, on the morning of the 15th June 1998, and got to Brighton Marina, the see one of the world cup football matches on the TV.

From Brighton sailed to Bethon Marina at Lymington, were we had some work done on the cockpit bimini.
50.45.64 N 001.31.92 W
On to Alderney, picked up a friend, Rob Platts, then on to his home marina in Guernsey, Beaucette, and stayed a very pleasant two weeks, spending time with Rob and Ross, and their lovely daughters Katy and Sophie.

Next stop was La Corna, in Spain, crossing the Bay of Biscay to get there. This is where we encountered our first storm, we had 45 knots of wind, which may not seem that bad, but in Biscay, 10 metre waves built up and were braking over the yacht, so we had to "hove to", of the night.
The noise of the waves hitting the top deck was very disturbing, the steel vibrated as tons of water hit it, being brand new and not knowing the yacht then, as we do now, were concerned that she may not take the pounding .
Now we know Mr Bean is a very sturdy girl, and is very strongly built.
49.30.18 N 002.30.27 W
We where both very anxious, and have never encountered anything like it since, I though this was the end of our trip, as Lindy was feeling very sick, and I thought she might say enough is enough.
But come the morning the sun came out, the wind and waves decreased, and we made La Corna the following day.
