Much of the same weather, 20 - 30 knots of westerly blowing us on a run at really good boat speeds of up to 13 knots on the surf. Quite big seas causing the boat to occasionally swerve on the top of the waves and drive the bow round. Mildly alarming at times!
This continued throughout the night and the morning and we achieved an average speed of 7.1 knots and 169.5 nm covered in 24 hours.
