(from Bob) Wow! As i am typing this, Scatt calls down form the cockpit to announce that the running back is broke. The turning block for the running check stay has disintegrated. We turn down for a few minutes to get it sorted and install the starboard running gear to the port stay. as I am trimming in the main sheet, I get dumped on by a huge wave. I had just come up in my inside clothes, so now I am soaking wet. (Well now< I have changed into a new shirt and my bathing suit.)

I was going to say we have cracked off and the boat is not pounding much. last night we were heading 090 and winds were 15 to 20 from 015. now they have backed off and we are between 090 and SF (~060).

It is hard to type (or rest) in these rough conditions. We definitely should have been higher before getting to this wind. Hopefully it will lessen in next day and we can get back to motoring...

Lets see if I can get an email connection.
