Moving about the boat has been an extreme challenge recently. We set our sights a mere 10 feet ahead and we lunge for it, then we take deep breaths and repeat the action until we reach our destination. climbing the companionway has always been difficult as our steps are steep but the added obstacle of clambering over the washboard has added to the obstacle course! The height of the waves behind us and the foam coming off the top – resembling bubble bath in a jacuzzi – has convinced us that a washboard is a sensible precaution. Preparation of last night’s supper included a flying cutlery drawer (which luckily didn’t dump its contents all over the saloon), green pepper projectiles (which did go all over the saloon) and some rapid modifications to our stowage security – more bungees!! All now well. Winds have been up to 30 knots so that has improved our daily run rate, the rain has stopped and the sun is shining once again.
