Tough IMN:424408710 REF:431025

….. it is.
Seriously tough.
Sea seems outrageous.
Crossed Arwen this morning just as their spinnaker halyard broke. Spectacular sight but pity and trouble and a lot of work for their crew. They surprised us with a dead down wind course under spi.

We’re carrying one reef and staysail. Doing 9-11kts over ground AWA 65deg. 280nm to Peterhead.

Outlook of WNW7 and even N later is a bit scary.
For that leg we wish we’d stepped on an 80 foot Wally.
With a library and a dryer.

We’re fine. Good watch and sleeps.
