After running 2 hours under engine, wind and waves on the nose increased to 25kn plus and I started to yell at all weather forecasts gathered before leaving. Luckily it turned out to be an acceleration zone around the western tip of Madeira.
We are now back to normal with 15-18kn making good progress in sugar conditions. It might not stay like this the whole voyage but let’s cross fingers, that Aiolos will be considerate to make this another passage in great comfort for us.
