We have been fighting a headwind for what feels like forever. We are averaging 1-1.5nm per hour in a Westerly direction. Most of this involves locking our rudder down at full starboard, deploying our daggerboard, and rowing with only the port oar. This has led to some pains in the upper shoulder blade and hip flexors from twisting to see where the waves are hitting (starboard bow quarter, so over our left shoulder when rowing). We can over power the wind enough to hit the waves head on (the safest way go over them), and have lucky to crest most at about 45.. Regardless we are still making headway, and the weather hints for better days come Monday. Fingers-crossed -Mike
