A trying Day

26 January 2018 | 22 Miles to Cape Horn
4:00pm Friday 26th January 2018 ( UTC-4 ) Trying to get past Cape Horn, that is. The breeze didn't stir till 7:00pm last night and then only very quietly. All through the night it changed direction and strength and with the many islands and rocks in the vicinity it would not have been sensible to trust the windvane so not much sleep was had. It came in fresh on the nose in the early morning and by degrees the jib was furled leaving just the storm jib up which in the stiff but not strong breeze would not take us to windward. The mast stays got a minor try out and all seemed up to spec. but I guess I won't try to press on too hard when on the Port tack just to be safe. The breeze is now about 6 knots so another night with little sleep is expected. There are rain showers and cloud to the South West and therefore no photos so I am passing the time away pumping ions.
