Another tough day....

Location 19:53.113S 167:07.100W

COG: 297T
SOG: 7.3kn
Wind: 26.4kn
Wind Dir.:154T
DTG: 162nm

The wind has picked up again with long periods of steady 25kn and gusts up to 34kn.
This has been accompanied by heavy rain all day.
The generator has failed, hopefully this is just because the boat is rolling around so much and isn’t anything more serious - I will investigate when the wind drops.
It’s difficult to sleep when we are moving around like this, so everyone is very tired and a bit fed up - we are very much looking forward to our arrival tomorrow.
Only 160 nm to go now, thank goodness!
