Heavy Going

29 January 2018 | 120 Miles South of Cape Horn
5:00pm Monday 29th January 2018 ( UTC-4 ) The wind was starting to ease off a few hours ago whilst travelling under storm jib and a tiny bit of the fore jib. I thought I had the first blow, which is marked at 50 knots near the Horn, beat but then the wind really started to howl. I ran off and doused and lashed the storm jib then altered course back to the South. Laying beam on to the sea the mast started to get the Wobblies so now I am heading NNE and have the main strain on the Port lower 10mm wire which with the tension of the 3 lower temporary stays seems quite steady. The plan is to keep to the South of some of these lows and try to make quite a few miles to the West and then head North when the opportunity arises. I can see I can only travel on the Port tack, that is the wind coming from the right side, in moderate conditions so a little patience will be required.
