Last 48 hours high sea and wind more than 40 kn; still fighting with
waves, wind speed around 30 at the moment:
1. Wave damage deck shelter,
result: water coming into the boat, – managed to put an improvised
sealing. 2. Something in the water hit ruder, result: ruder firbrates a
lot, hope it will be o.K. till Valdivia. 3. Computer to comunicate does
not work properly anymore. 4. Crew o.K., here a joke from Sabine: What
is the difference between a washing maschine and a boat: in the washing
mashine the water is inside, – in the boat hopefully outside! – Any info
how long it will continue is welcome!
