It’s pretty stressful sailing pushing the big (replacement) spinnaker so
hard... We are right on the upper wind limit and have all fingers and toes
crossed that it holds out until after we have rounded Muckle Flugga, when
our wind direction will change.
All the way up here today we are lucky to have some sun, but the sea
temperature is icy and the nights are very cold, where you can see
condensation with every breath, and it’s definitely mid-layers, thermals
and a sleeping bag for off-watches.
Roll-on Muckle Flugga! Phil
