Leg to Pantelleria

Hard times on Atame

the long leg, beating to wind and rough seato reach Pantelleria leaves no space to tactic with no crew weight on the rail there is little to do to sail closer to the angle, we could not  point more than 38 / 40 degrees, resulting in a longer leg than others nonetheless the gale warnng deserves full attention, I decided to stay closer to the estern part of the leg to Lampedusa where the winds should be slightly weaker and the shift could help in a fast mid day run a part from a exploded wang block, the gas bottle empty (leak at the tap…) the crew is performing well, watches are long, almost 6 hours each from Favignana on

looking forward to share a hot cup of tea …
