Storm Force winds

We finally got the strong easterlies that were forecast for the 10th and have made good progress to the west in 20 to 25kt winds and 10ft seas. The winds continued to build to 30kts late yesterday and we have been steadily reducing sail and are now running under twin storm sails in big following seas with both daggerboards down and to aid steerage. The seas are spectacular if uncomfortable with sleep difficult at best in these rolly conditions.
