Southerly Strikes - Not Quite There!
31 December 2010
12:30 pm EDT - the south winds have come, and strong. 25 - 30 knots. But coming over us at 60 - 70 degrees off the port bow, we can use sail, and increase our speed, giving us a chance of getting in out of this blow sooner. So we have a part of the genny out - engine running - and doing over 6 knots, heeled over, in the sunshine - and 1 hour to go.
