gulf stream

well that was an experience.
we had 3 knots of current against the 18 knot winds and the result was 15 to 20 foot waves
that were maybe 30 to 50 feet apart. There was a prevailing wave direction kinda but it was mostly a washing machine of waves. It was terrible. We were beam to the big waves and they knocked us so far over on every wave that the boom hit the water.
We called our weather router guy and he told us how to change direction to leave the stream within 1 hour.
It was amazing. It was like a line in the water where the crazy waves just stopped.

We are enjoying pleasant winds and normal lumpy atlantic seas right now.
We should arrive in NY city by wed midday sometime.
