Cheltenham boss Mark Yates was pleased to come away from Torquay with a point even after having led twice in their 2-2 draw.
Josh Low put the Robins ahead and, after Billy Bodin equalised, Kaid Mohamed restored Cheltenham's lead. But Kevin Nicholson's 30-yard thunderbolt meant the spoils were shared and Yates was happy with the outcome.
"It was a really good point because this is a tough place to come and the windy conditions made it very tricky for both teams," he said.
"I thought both teams played some really good football. It was a great advert for League Two football, especially given the conditions.
"It was probably a fair result but the disappointing thing is that we were winning and we haven't come away the three points.
"That said, I'm delighted with the players' performance, their effort and their attitude."
