One small problem with the rudder and we are left at the mercy of ocean. A hydraulic hose burst last night and we lost all control to the steering mechanism of Pangaea. All hands on deck furl the sails and drift while we started the search for the problem. 4 hours later everything is fixed again and we take control.

One hour later heavy seas and strong headwinds snaps the halyard of our storm jib and we sail under main sail 3rd reef alone.

All we can do now is change course down south and wait for the low pressure system to pass. We will lose 28 hours but we will stay safe.
