Notes From The Navigator

[ 30 / 05 / 2005 ]
It was a really shitty night last night. Sailing upwind into 30 to 35 (gusts to 45) through a warm front, black as pitch, a horrible seaway which made the boat pound off waves something heanous, a night which would make a young fella on his first ocean crossing think twice about ever doing it again.

Just on dusk we broke the headboard car (which holds the mainsail up), which meant we sailed the whole night with only the jib up. We spent half the night effecting a cunning repair, but conditions did not allow us to hoist the mainsail again till dawn.

Once the front had gone through we were able to get going again, and now an amazing thing has happened. We are able to ease the sheets and head straight for Dear Old Blighty at high speed.

After about 5 days of sailing upwind never able to lay course, this is a wonderous thing. Life on board in these conditions is pretty wet, in fact really wet. In the conditions we had last night you just have to exist untill things improve. It just makes the beer taste that little bit better when you do finish.
