Flag of France  , Languedoc-Roussillon,
Saturday, November 15, 2008

I woke up around 6.30 to get some hot and fresh bread for everybody, then i went to get the meteo We got the only good time to leave, saturday 15 from 12am to 2am the morning after. Before and after that period, the mediteranea was too craizy to sail!!!
11am: I kiss my homeland a last time and get into the boat very excited!

At the very moment, we left the marina, the wind took us very roughly, 40 knuts and 3 meters high on a very short distance. We passed in the day, Cap Bear, Cap Cerbere (leaving officially France), Cap Creous which is the worst cap to pass along the spanish coast!
During the night and the watch, i got really seasick, waiting hastily for my turn to sleep. the next day and half was really tough to manage cause being seasick makes you re-think all your opinions about the ocean and sailing... Itīs a very hard time to pass...
During the second 4hours watch, i reached my limits and was really close to breakdown... Serious hardcore time, puking when you have to be able to act on the boat while everybody else is sleeping, counting on you!
