The wind over the last 24 hours has changed through a complete 360 degrees. So we have gone from a Port reach, to a dead run, to a Starboard reach, to on the nose and then back to the Port side. This direction changes has made the last 24 hours very interesting sailing.

The wind direction changes also created some very lumpy and big seas, the waves not knowing which way to go.
