PAST HALFWAY LAST NIGHT
WILD WEATHER HAD TO TAKE TURNS CAREENING DOWN SWELLS UP TO 18KTS
STILL REEFED SINCE CABO
It sounds like the weather is a bit frisky and the fact that they are still reefed down means there is no lack of wind. The waves were a bit of a roller coaster ride last night and it was too much for the auto pilot so they were taking turns hand-steering. All is well.
