Had an interesting last 24 hours.All watches had their busiest time so far. Overnight we encountered many squalls with varying wind directions and speeds. Saw 48knots wind speed at approx 04.30 this morning! Taboo handled it well and those asleep didnt notice. Paul and Martin were on watch at the time. Speeds have reached over 9 knots and we have consistantly made between 7 and 8 knots. So progress is very good against the plan.
We had clear blue skies all day yesterday, beautifull sailing weather.
Tim has made some great pancakes with bacon this morning which went down very well
On a peronal note it has taken me a while to get used to doing normal things (washing, eating, sleeping, moving!) on a yacht sailing consistantly under Force 7 winds. But am getting ther and very much enjoying the experience.
