Todate we were doing quite well in this race, we are now probably last in
the Cat section, done about 30 miles in 24
hours. We went West trying to get the wind, for the last 30 hrs we have had
30 on the nose, sailing just with tiny head sail, going more north than west
Any faster and the boat is pounding so hard I'm worried we will loose the
rig, so going slow and hoping the move will pay off in the next 48. We tried
motoring and that was worse, doing 1-2 kts with both engines. So may as well
sail slowly. The seas are really huge and in a mess waves hitting from all
angles stopping the boat dead every 5 mins,so not good. Morale is ok (ish)
Vic and Christian doing well, I'm hitting some lows, probably lack of sleep.
Kids are fine they watching movies.
Wish us luck all our Love
