..... it is.

Seriously tough.

Sea seems outrageous.

Crossed Arwen this morning just as their spinnaker halyard broke. Spectacular sight but pity and trouble and a lot of work for their crew.

They surprised us with a dead down wind course under spi.

We're carrying one reef and staysail. Doing 9-11kts over ground AWA 65deg.

280nm to Peterhead.

Outlook of WNW7 and even N later is a bit scary.

For that leg we wish we'd stepped on an 80 foot Wally.

With a library and a dryer.

We're fine. Good watch and sleeps.

Pasta Bolognese, Rice Cashew and Cruesli for Breakfast.
