> Feels like we are on a sleigh, we have good speed and are comfortable with just the genoa pulling us along but a bit bumpy as the sea is on the starboard quarter. Still Loving this catamaran gig, The only things we have eaten from bowls are soup or cereal, tea and coffee generally fine sitting on the table, the hob not gimballed and nothing has yet found the floor.
> Less than 2 days to go now all going well, we could go a bit faster, we have average 22.5 knots wind and sog 6.5 - 7 with genoa, we'd do 10 with the parasailor but for everyone's comfort we will stick with this sail plan unless the wind drops. It is fast enough and, although we all want to arrive, no one seems desperate to get off.
