6146 04950 Not having fun...

but those numbers are getting better. About another 200 miles and we will be able to 'see' Falmouth around the corner. Left Paamiut at 1115 UTC in calm overcast, out into a vicious short swell and a rising headwind - not really forecast - now in steady 20 kts, short and nasty sea - if you were out in Fastnet 2007, similar but a bit more gentle here because a bit less wind. 2 reefs and half the heady. Icebergs around and getting misty. But the good thing about these systems is that they dont last very long - then neither do the good bits!.
