Larry again,
A fairly eventfull night last night with little sleep to be had. The violent motion of the boat with big seas and winds uo to 30kts from a mean of around 20kts. Once again nthe contents of the cabin have distributed themselves to wherever they liked. The cockpit was completely overrun by the sea at one point, which is very unusual for 'Zahara', since then we have stayed below as much as possible. Still, a very good nights run, clocking up 75nm at an average speed of over 5kts.
We also had our first real rain yesterday afternoon. Unfortunately, I was down below cooking but Ron thoroughly enjoyed his shower and hair wash.... my turn nex!.
