Sarah Mercedes - Day 4
Wind. And a good helping of it. We started of the day trucking along at 9-10 knots of boat speed and as the hours passed the wind grew. The kite was the first to go down, then two reefs were put in, and I can proudly say we handled today largely with composure. A night of rolling waves and more wind follow. I suggested a game of human cluedo to add some healthy competition to the boat, naturally the 5 dads on board scrutinised the game so intensely that by the time they wanted to play, the kite and reefing was a bigger priority. It also seems the fruit is bored of hanging in the netting above our heads and so we are beginning to experience tangerine and lime showers inside the saloon.
