Subject: Fw: Bad night

The last 36 hours has been very bad with very rough seas that have been
breaking over the boat on a regular basis

yesterday whilst bob was on deck putting in the third reef in the main a wave came over from the bow and took away with it the bimini surrounds by ripping through the cockpit and ripping off all the zips the cock pit filled up and water went down below taking out the lap top, engine now has a fault with the gauges saying high pressure but runs so when we have more settled weather i shall check it

Various other routes for the seas have been found to access below decks

EVERY ONE is fine and we now have another 200nm to run to port villa in Vanuatu

our position is 17:54s 171:45e
