What a night!

Tuesday 0730

Well, the forecast 20 to 30 knot winds came in with a vengeance last night, along with a crazy, steep sea that challenged the helms - and it kept it up for most of the night. The wind had increased a little earlier in the evening, necessitating a reef. The first foreboding of something bigger came at around 10, so we put a second reef as a precaution - good call!

We stormed along at up to 10 knots, putting us in a geat position to achieve an extremely good result for the race - maybe even finishing as early as thursday morning. Fingers crossed!
