St Briac to Gozo 2015

By Eddie Smith

Firstly the boat. China Girl II is a 1982 , 23ft, Virgo Voyager and very well equipped with an inboard diesel,
Garmin chart plotter, DSC VHF, AIS and an offshore liferaft. She also has a very efficient solar panel. I
have complete faith in her but she can be tender, particularly in a 3-4 metre swell and Force 6-7. She has a
very buoyant stern and rises to the waves well. Our record surfing down waves is 10 knots, not to be
recommended but the boat coped well, although the crew was battered and bruised. Now safely in Gozo
with further adventures being planned for 2016.
