A nice day of sailing
Mon 24 Jun 2019 09:16
Since yesterday evening we've been trying to sail along the isobars of a low pressure area, to profit from the strong wind. However, it also means zero visibility during the night because of the clouds and non stop rain. Again it was a course dead downwind, so steering the boat was very demanding. The two of us camped outside whole night long, one steering with nothing else to focus on than a windmeter and digital compass and one recuperating on the floor. Every 20 min we switched positions.
We passed a big bulk carrier and a Greenpeace boat, unbelievable but both on a collision course. Or where they just approaching us to have a look at 2 nutcases?
