Plenty of Wind

The evening built into a solid Force 8 which stayed with us much of the night.  Pacific Bliss was very manageable and rolled happily downhill at 8kn under 3 reefs and no jib.    The sea was getting up to 5m swells with choppy tops.

We are getting to terms with holding the boat on a dead run with autopilot. Advice from Phil Berman was to put the spinnaker up, but we weren’t that brave.
