The wind is blowing from exactly where we want to go now and with the sea state progress is painful on either tack.
We are motor sailing for some extra punch through the waves, I am reluctant to put up a bigger head sail as last night we had some big cumulous clouds, lots of thunder and lightening and gusts up to 27kts on the nose. Hopefully the breeze will die off some more, seas flatten and we can motor in the right direction.
It’s hot as hell down bellow already and we cant open the hatches for air but at least the water on deck is warm when it hits you.
