We've now sailed nearly 1000 miles in the last week. The last 24 hours have been awful; the seas have been very short and steep, causing the sails to constantly spill the wind and slam. Last night we had these conditions combined with rain, my worst night at sea since leaving the UK.

Today we saw a whale quite close to the boat, it was crusing on the surface and did not mind us being there.

Clocks have gone back an hour.
