This is such a powerful boat - we've only got 20-25 knots of wind and we've dropped to the third reef (40%) and a storm jib. We're doing a comfotable 8 knots while we try to preserve ourselves and get some rest - not that easy as P42 seems to enjoy going through, rather than over every other wave.

We're all well, surviving on as much sleep as we can in short bursts and a lot of pasta and chocolate.

Keeping this short to keep the laptop dry!
