..... it is.
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.
