Early yesterday morning we left the beauties of South Georgia to ride 45 knts of south westerly into the Southern Ocean on our way to Tristan. There was a lot of swell too – 8m high waves at times. I was flat out in my bunk again!
This morning I feel much better and am back on watch. Just now that meant half an hour on the helm in a snow storm, but much of the time it is sunny and magnificent. As I type we are at 52. 32.5 South and 032, 05.9 West. The Furious Fifties indeed.
