Title: Sailing in 41 knots (20 m/sec)

well if a sailor tells you they sailed in 41 knots, ask them for how long. We tend to tell the maximum gust and so it was yesterday.
We sailed 50 Nautical Miles in mostly 20-25 knots of wind (10-12 m/sec) but we where hit by a dark cloud that gave us a real taste of a true gale.
That lasted maybe for 40 minutes and Salsa behaved like a lady that knows how to dance in heavy weather.
Now we are in Lauwersoog, a place that feels like stopping at a gas station in the middle of nowhere. But it took us a couple of hours to get here but since the weather was so hard and was about to get worse we felt we had enough.
