WAVES! Big upwind day for Lindy. Rounded the volcano Stromboli in the middle of the night and then headed toward north shore of Sicily passing through small islands on the way. The strength of Swan yachts was evident as we fell off a 30 ft wave in free fall- no damage to the boat after that huge crash, interior looked like the remnants of a student party, and crew have bumps and bruises.
Plenty of boats near us for the start of this leg but we slowly pulled clear of all but one. Seems we are both well placed in our class so a race is definitely on.
