We hove-to last night in big seas and strong winds. This morning we took off again at around 9:30 and have been sailing ever since, but still in 25+ knots and 3 to 5 meter seas. It just calmed a bit and it's not so wet in the cockpit (think buckets dumped over one's head). There are about 55 miles to go and we hope to be in to port tomorrow.
Tom's quote of the day: "One meter my ass", commenting on the weather forecast that called for up to one meter seas in our area.
