We've had some great sailing the last 24 hours. Yesterday we were cruising 6knots, with an 8 knot head wind! When I came on duty this last night, Troels and Moana had trimmed the boat really beautifull! The wind was 12-15knots, and we were flying 35-40 degrees on the wind, I didn't have to touch the wheel for two hours, the boat was completely balanced. This morning there were no wind, so we had to motor, now the wind has become northerly, that was really unexpected.
Everyone is in good shape now. The seasickness is not a problem anymore. It also seems that we are all sleeping well.
Stay tuned
