If there is wind, it's on our nose

We are now anchored at Helgoland. Getting here was a combination of motoring in light winds or sailing in stiff winds on a close reach. As Shirlee noted with winds under 10 knots a close reach is not uncomfortable, but with 15 to 20 knots the only comfort to be found is on the downwind settee. As the winds built we rolled up the jib and used the staysail. Tomorrow we will top up with fuel and food then wait for our next weather window to continue southwest.
