the weather was the next surprise, as indicated at the start of the day, bizzzar and putting in a very rough sea state of over 4 - 5 meter waves. This increased and unexpected also due to very high spring tides. Everything on the boat was rocking off the shelves and mountings. We got home in one peace, after over 12 hours of motor boating, around 23:00pm GMT.
My steering was much smoother with less oversteer. Rope work was heavily tested today, leaving my hands and skin coarse and tender. I used hitches for speedily hanging fenders today. I intend to practise my other knots which I didn't get to use this passage, later.
