So my little wind dance worked!
Sunday 5 June
Wind built to 25 to 30 knots over the afternoon and evening. The sea was very rough which made surfing the waves quite fun however a soaking from a rogue was not so fun!
Throughout the night the wind and sea calmed a bit, which was quite a relief as this was probably the largest waves I had sailed in and made helming at night quite difficult.
Unfortunately we are once again becalmed however this time it is not quite as frustrating as we feel like we have earnt a bit of 'down time!' (not sure that sentiment will last very long as the flapping of the sails has alredy started to get on my nerves!)
