We’ve had 3 days of unpleasant wind and seas with constant mid to high 20 knots and gusts up to 34! This isn’t trade wind sailing as we were told… Washing machine springs to mind. That said I (notional skipper) have the current speed record of 10.8 knots 🙂
Today Monday the winds have finally abated and we actually do have trade wind sailing conditions of 15 knots and a calming sea…. phew! Showers all round, washing and water making completed.
We have 3 water tanks on board and have accidentally left a seacock open on one after putting fresh water in meaning its contaminated now with sea water…. as I’m only the notional skipper we all know it was Caroline’s fault !!!
Now of course the winds will die completely !
