Pos @ 0846 UTC 36:07N 42:14W 666 DTG (nobody superstitious here). Wind
25-35 (occasional 40)SSW. Boat speed 8+ knots. Pity not in the right
direction but heading north with as much easting as pos. More light
stuff from N after this thing blows through in 24 hours. Wind vane
steering coping well. Three reefs in main and well-furled yankee. Seas
building. Time to put the kettle on.
