As the day progressed the winds increased from 8 to 10 knots into the 25 to 30 knot range.
This weather is not exactly what the colour brochure had for us ... but other than being a tad rolly in 25 to 30 gusts to 35 from the NNE. We are chasing down all the clanging cupboard contents! So grateful for the full enclosure as the 10+ foot waves smack us broadside - nice and dry inside. We are under staysail and double reefed main. Everyone is doing great on board even though a tad tired as we try to get used to sleeping with the racket on board.
|Not a clear shot but will give you an idea......|
|sorry for the reflection in the enclosure ....|
|Waves breaking over the bow and onto the dodger VERY frequently!!|
Winds are to be lighter Tuesday, but the waves will still be 15 feet so we will see how that goes. Either way we will be in BVI soon and the rum will be great!
