Last Day at Sea

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.
