We sail steadilly on under grey skies over a grey sea with a huge swell directly from astern.An occasional wave splashes in and the boat although steady most of the time lurches violently onthe big swells.Not a place for beginners.at least it is still warm although teeshirt today.
The No 1 furler is giving problems and we suspect abearing has gone.Whether we can replace this easilly inPanama or not is the question.Time is getting short for the Paccific and can´t afford anymore delays.
Hot showers alround tonight.
