Reduced sail as seas and winds picked up a bit: solent to staysail to storm jib, one reef to two reefs to three reefs with 35 knots of wind now coming from the northeast. Heading is 335 degrees true, speed is 8 knots. The boat is pounding itself on the waves badly. Am doing this to get north into the high to wrap around and then head east to France.
Day 110 – Heading north
