Day 9 May 27 Great sailing

Noon-to-noon 164 miles. Great downwind sailing. Taonui is so good at this. Three reefs in the main and 1/2 of the #2 genoa poled out, Albert loving it. At dawn a big frontal area passed over, lots of rain, and out the other side, as forecast the wind went from SW to NW. Very confused peaky seas tossing the boat around. Went W+W on the other tack, but now, noon, back onto a broad reach. Still violent tossing, but it is going down.

Noon position was 49 36N 8 59W with 149 miles to go to the Lizard and then 15 miles into Falmouth Harbour.
