250nm to run, wind 16kn 50degress off the starboard sea state a little too bumpy to push the speed for family comfort, not bad really. Going to arrive at 1am if we continue at this speed!
Tough night with plenty of wind and bouncy sea. Not as hard as the night before, but uncomfortable for family. Not much school being done.
Just finished 'Berserk in the Antarctic' by David Mercy. A brilliant read, and I havent decided with it was the right book to read whilst at sea as it is one of those sailing horror stories, though very funny at the same time. Probably 'in the bath' is as close to water one should be when reading it.
