Blowing 17 knots, and the boat is flying (as is everything and everyone in it). Very bouncy, and doing 6.9knots. 85 miles to go. Long night ahead, and rest doubtful. Not much ship traffic, and seas building. Lots of slamming and banging. Reefing down shortly if wind does not drop off. Amazing how fast it changes! Will post again at first light.
