It is 07:00 in the morning. We have 68 miles to go to Mar del Plate.
The wind did finally turn up - 35 knots from the south. That made it more lively. Suddenly we were making more than 7 knots, and soon we were really "rolling" along. We are in the shallows at 90 meters or so, and there are currents. The sea came up and tossed us around. By now, the next morning, it is enough, and I do expect it to calm down a little. At leas the wind is now down to 20 knots. It is time to look at the sail configuration again.
Do we get in to night? It is still open, but likely. Besides Mar del Plata is one harbour where it it possible to enter in the dark.
More when we are in.
