Wind is consistently more than 5 knots than GRIBS show. We have not seen less than 20kts all night and the average is probably a little higher. Fortunately the rain seems to have stopped and the sun is shining, tunes are playing on deck although still very wet. General bellow deck temperature is much more bearable. Touch wood its been great sailing so far and no damage worth noting. However the main mast is leaking badly around the partners and the leeward bunk cant be slept in anymore. We will have to do something about this before the next offshore trip.
