Freedom Yacht Video - sailing to France

Post by Crossjack »

Here is Crossjack (a Freedom 33 Sloop) sailing to Cherbourg, France from Southampton in a F7. Some of the video is taken from a Westerly Storm 33, so clearly the stays that you spot wont be a Freedom yacht!

Well we managed to pick up something on the prop so the last couple of hours took rather longer than expected after an amazingly fast sail across. Then the tide changed and we ended up downtide of the eastern entrance. Not a good thing to do.

On a positive note, we dropped the Westerly 33 as we were so fast ;)
Then we had lots of red wine and St Vaast oysters - so all was good again :P

Yummy Oysters. I was hoping you would mention the food.

Looks like a hoyt F32 to me. Nice video though. I would venture to say that the F33 in UK is the F32 in USA.
