We sailed through the front last night. And we had an epic sail change from the small J3 jib to the smaller Staysail when it was so wet on the foredeck that 3 of the 4 Maiden’s life jackets self inflated.
Today the wind has dropped to around 13 knots, still upwind, but enough to shake a reef, we now have 1 left, and we also changed back to the J3. We need the power to sail against a massive 3 meter swell coming at us. All good onboard 😊
