Storm Off Kerguelen Island

Mike reports, " We are moving 30° downwind and are protecting ourselves from huge breaking waves. For the last 11 hours Pangaea has been obliged to run with the wind. All sails are down and our speed is 9-10 knots.. The winds are coming from the NE at 56 knots!! We are hoping that in a few hours we can get in the lee of the island and protect ourselves from the storm. It's tough going but Pangaa and her crew are coping well.

Will send you more news from Kerguelen!".
