After a couple of excellent days sailing the wind is solidly on our nose. Wind speed is around 12knots which is a little too weak for Moonstone to make good windward progress in the lumpy seas and we have tacked a lot but with little benefit......Mr Perkins may be called on to help us motor our way forward this morning. We have to make some easting as stronger south east winds are forecast for Thursday evening and we don’t want to pass Bermuda on the wrong side and without stopping!
Life onboard has settled into our usual long watch pattern and Claire continues to produce the most amazing meals despite the ships heel and hobby horsing!
