As expected, we had all of everything in the
first 24 hours from start: Heavy rain, variable to strong winds, reefs, thunderstorms and fog.
To get familiar with the environment, we changed helm every half an hour after the start. With dinner (spaghetti Bolognese prepared by Stefan and Horst) we settled in our watch system. The new sails performing well - jib and mainsail were up, depending on the wind reefed or not.
Currently, we are suffering old seas and light Winds - speed 3 knots. What a difference to the speed of 8 knots this morning. Anyway - everything goes well on board - the captain is now catching up sleep after a busy night.
