Sarah Mercedes - Day 5
Strong wind continued through the night along with some rain. The intense nature of the night resulted in many of the crew waking with bumps and bruises. It was however, a good wake up call and reminder that the pleasant motoring of the first few days is not what crossing the Atlantic is all about. Peter H continues to impress in the kitchen with a superb salmon dish last night, with Pete B inspired pesto on top. Considering the conditions, I can only applaud what happened in his temple of calmness that was the kitchen. The past few hours has offered some rest bite allowing Stephen to read and others to catch up on sleep while we await for greater winds to arrive.
