Climb every mountain

We continue to make progress . Wind has shifted so it’s now NE directly from where we want to go so it’s life at an angle for us, every task on board feels you have to climb up a mountain. Getting to the helm, getting to the heads, getting in and out of wet weather gear is all a big effort.

The weather is not looking very friendly ahead. A storm is brewing with gale force NE winds in the channel just when we get there. Normally if you were sailing along the coast you would take shelter. Out here there is no where to hide so we just have to prepare for it. On the positive side we do have Polished Manx and Exehibitionist on Ais so we don’t feel alone and had a nice radio chat with both boats yesterday.

Thanks for all the Fb comments and thanks to Tessa for passing them on.

No photo today as it’s all a bit grey and damp.
