Day 13

255nm to go.

Well you have two very tired grumpy sailers here.
Late last night the wind started to pick up once again and so did the ocean, then the wind died but the ocean didn't this has left us with a roll like you would not believe.
Talk about a side ways rocking horse man we roll so far over one way, than just when you think you are going to tip right over, it rolls you back the other way and all the time bucking around like crazy.

As you know we have no main sail working at the moment which would of helped to settle the boat but now we have no mizzen either, that's the back one, with all the horrible nasty stuff we got thrown at us the other day well it's put a crack in the Davits, this is what is holding up the dingy and a big solar panel.

As the Mizzen booms ropes are connected to this we can't use it at all, the crack is a bad one and we just can't risk it getting worse and losing the dingy and solar panel.

So we continue on rocking and rolling if we go below 3.5 knts we start the engine to get us moving a bit faster, but it's turning this into a much longer trip than we ever thought.

Well tomorrow is another day.
