Day Two at Sea

Thu 6 Oct 2022 10:37
Hopefully this makes it through...
Gentle winds, 8-18kts all through the night with occasional gusts of 22.
Only problem is sea state which was about 2 to 3 metres and very steep. Not much sleep was had by any of the crew, having been rolled around our beds the entire night. Part of the problem was not being able to use any of the foresails. We were on a dead run and the yankee would constantly crumple and wrap around the forestay.
Just before writing this, and after much much faffing, we have finally managed to get the yankee out on the pole. Hopefully this will increase both speed and stability. We will see...
Ho is just about to whip up some bacon and egg sandwiches - best idea I've ever heard.
