The wind has increased to 25-27kn. We have been sailing with reefed main and staysail.
The big problem that we have had is that the auto helm has broken and needs some welding so we are having to hand steer.
In addition the wind has shifted round to the West so it is directly on the nose.
Still 140 nm to go and we are motoring to our destination.
It’s not very comfortable, hopefully we will get there Tuesday morning.
