It has been another rough night as the wind and weather
systems have now turned the final leg to the Azores into a bash to
windward. Additionally, a weak Low pressure system and cold front barrier
exists between us and the Azores. Fortunately we are already on the cold
front side and won't have to deal with the rain for the moment!
We have had to sail further South to skip around the bottom of
this forming Low. It should move North over the next few days, but we will
see. Positioning us further South should give us a better ride into the
Azores as the wind is due to move to the Eastsoutheast.
We are all looking forward to a rest in Horta, hopefully by
Friday night or Saturday morning.
