7022 14244 this wasn't in the plan!

McQ said it all except that we are now hand steering. I have seen sustained gusts of 40+ and some huge breaking waves. Southern ocean stuff - not in the brochure for up here. Another 36 hours of it according to the grib. Still no hf.

H tks for relay gust bk msg, Izz, just had goonish scoff. Ta.

Now going to take heart in mouth and try to send this by iridium. Have to take whole system down to do so so always a bit grey knuckle when try to bring it up again.
