Last Day at Sea
28 October 2016 | Passage to Hawaii
The past couple days we've been sailing through intense winds and waves. At this moment (6 am), It's blowing 30 knots on the beam, with 2 meter swells and a lot of wind waves. We are sailing Huzzah as fast as we dare, always mindful to make sure we “don't crash the ambulance” as we say. We are continually taking water into the cockpit, and we're all soaked. Not cold, but soaked. We've been sailing over 8 knots for some time, so our ETA into Hawaii YC is 7 pm this evening. A welcome respite it will be.
