The morning was awful. At noon, it got really awful. Low winds, flogging sail and chaotic waves from at least three directions. Easy was rolling up to 25°. A reasonable life on board was nearly impossible. I could only move around in the boat with great difficulty. Truely nerve-racking conditions. In the afternoon, the wind increased a little. I set both poles, one to each side. So far I have only uset the one on starboard for the genoa. Now, everything feels much better!
