A good overnight wind bought unusually big seas, so massive rolling, but at least the sails were not flapping about: they were straining at the leash, and pushing us along at up to 8 knots. So getting to within motoring distance of the Azores now, will head for Flores and hope to get in there and not have to deal with onshore winds and swell. Geoff sends me wonderfully detailed forecasts that I never quite take all in: so the bits that I don't tgrasp leave me worrying! His retirement plans have ground to a halt in Stanstead's departure lounge: bet he wishes he was back at work!
