Having sailed 30 miles against the prevailing winds we were forced to turn
back due to the skippers neglect(Mine)
Having secured the boat for heavy weather I forget to check the tightness of
one of the big forward windows.
In the heavy breaking seas a small amount of water ran down the high grab
rail channel and dripped into the main switchboard. BUGGER!!!
With no power and with the sea state lively we took the decision to turn
back into the Bay of Islands, repair the problem, get a good nights sleep
and start again today.
So we will leave at around 10am this morning.
