Wind NW 20-25 Knots Sea moderate to rough, Spewometer High!
It's a bit rough and unpleasant out here at the moment, but we are all alive and well! Seasickness has taken its toll of everyone, probably our worst sart to a passage yet. We are still making good iles hovever and are expecting lighter winds from tomorrow morning onwards.
The big news of the last 24 hours is that we manged to break the main halyard (the bit of string which pulls up the big sail) so we will have to reeve a temporary once the weather abates.
Otherwise, all quiet here, looking forward to some better weather so we can eat a proper meal!
