Follow the sailing journey with Steve Holloway and Judy Aslett.  Their experience on the wide open seas is a thrilling and exciting one.  This is their story:

In this episode we set off on a five day sail across the bay of Biscay with ARC Portugal. Three days in we get news of a force 10 storm crossing our path. The fleet of yachts have to run for cover, some head into open water and have to sit out the storm at sea. Two of them with no engine. We try and outrun the storm and make port in Northern Spain. There’s lots of information in this episode on sailing as part of a rally and what it’s like to attempt the Bay of Biscay.
