Well, it ain't got no flatter out here. Winds aren't too bad - only 30-40 kts, which in a bigger boat would be no probs. However the sea state is making things challenging with a boat Berri's size. The view from the top of the waves is spectacular, but also a bit unnerving when you know that there's another wave equally as big behind that has yet to be successfully negotiated, and then another, and another, and another to more than I have the patience to count to.
After Corrie and I both ended up swimming in the cockpit after getting knocked sideways by breaking waves we've gone into "night mode". Bare poles, heading SSE at about 4 kts, with Kevo driving. Seems to be going well so far, but Kevo does like to throw the odd bucket of ocean in your face when you least expect it. Anyway, on we plod.
Think "south" thoughts for us y'all!
Love to all,
