Title: Sunday and it's rough again

POS 44:34.01N 8:49.8W
 
Sunday arrives and the wind shifts south and builds along with waves.
Very tough going
Lots of offensive conversations on CH16 between all the ships ploughing the lanes from the med up to the English channel.
We are tacking again, , very close to the coast but this headwind will cost us another 12 hours or more as it effectively slows our speed down to about 2knots (CMG).
Later wind builds to 25knts F7 and we have a full main up, screeching along in the wrong direction !
