Wow...great post! The pictures of the inclinometer approaching 60 degrees and the portlight looking down into the sea are downright amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Wow!

Who says Hunters can't handle F10s in the Southern Ocean in relative safety and comfort? Nicely done Michael and Edi!

Fabulous stuff Michael. Great achievement.

Silly question perhaps but how do you find the cockpit enclosures in such heavy weather ? Are you tempted to fold them away, do you fold them away, or do they seem to hold up despite the battering ?

Cheers

Geez, Michael - you chose to lie ahull??? You never got the sailing forum memo, that's tantamount to Suicide? (grin)

Well done, glad to hear you've made it to the Falklands after all...

Fascinating place... Don't forget to pick up a Minefield Map as a souvenir before you leave...
