Position N60,50 x W014,53. Force 6-7 easterly
It is pretty uncomfortable now with two deep reefs and a reefed yankee. The waves are around 10ft and occasionally breaking over the yacht but the sun is popping out between the clouds so it is an attractive view. This weather is set to continue until tomorrow afternoon before easing off a bit but gales are due at the weekend and we are unlikely to make a safe harbour in time. We may hove too and ride the weather out at sea.
