Just because you can, doesn’t always mean you should. Overall the boat handled the crossing well, we never thought we were going to be in peril. A lot of systems on board began to fail, probably from excessive movement. Overall comfortability was rather low. Performance was good. I imagine most sailors would feel seasick on a passage like this. If this was not a delivery, I probably would have chosen a calmer weather window. We enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. We love being at sea. Waves only 6-12 occasionally 15. Northerly cold front, not a storm or squall.
