Had quite an evening with the wind hitting 40 knots.  A surprise for sure since no weather forecast mentioned it.  We were fine with a reefed mainsail and staysails alone.  Has calmed today blowing only 15 and seas have mellowed from 18ft to 8ft.  Hope tonight is uneventfull as it is hard to sleep when it's blowin a gale outside.
