Strong winds

Today was our first day at sea. We took of from Lisbon this morning and it started to swing very early.


Many of us got seasick witch wasn´t strange because the waves were up against 7 meters high. We were lying down on the floor next to the steering wheel. It feels better when you are lying down. But it wasn´t to windy, max 10m/s.

We have had headwind all the way so we have not been sailing much. We hoisted up some sails for stability but I hope that we soon can start sailing for real. But now the waves are not as high and we are headed towards the Mediterranean Sea.
