The winds have remained strongish and we're getting more gusts around 25kts. The seas have also continued to grow and we're rolling downwind once more. It's reasonably comfortable down below, provided you anticipate the big one! The forecasts suggest the winds will remain strong tomorrow, but then ease up in the days following. Just as well as with just over 1000 miles to go we need to head in a south westerly direction and were doing fine overnight, but a shift in wind direction has stopped us and we're heading almost due west once again. With the stronger winds the boat has just flown and the noon to noon run was 184.5 miles, the best yet this passage.
