I took this scrambling into the cockpit between splashy crests boarding the starboard quarter. It is less than 6 hours after the pictures of the cloudless skies we had this afternoon.

That gives you a pretty good idea of how fast the weather moves and changes down here. It has taken a bit of getting used to for me as it is unlike anything I’ve known or experienced anywhere else.

And at night. Why always at night? Everything is magnified at night. The noise down below makes one think that some gateway to another dimension has opened and all manner of things are outside trying to pound, hammer, pummel, chisel, grind, chip, or drill their way in. Sitting is safe. Everything else is a gamble. Lying down requires lee cloths and a seat belt.

The saving grace is that it will pass almost as quickly as it arrived. I wish it well and Bon Voyage hoping to speed it on its way east.

    In weather like today having a fellow partner would make the difference of the world.

    Heavy weather conditions are great only when you have enough energy to enjoy it. I wish you the time of your life.
