The wind and seas came up last night around 8pm. Since then we have been sailing under a fully reefed main and storm staysail. Sockdolager is rolling a bit but we are making pretty good progress in the big seas. We have about 110 miles to go. If luck holds we'll get into port tomorrow evening, otherwise Saturday. We can almost smell it now.
Tom's quote of the day: "You know, if you look forward instead of backward it's a lot less scary", said after 4 hours in the cockpit watching 10 to 15 foot dark grey seas roll under and past us from astern.
