Sorry, don't mean to be obtuse but do you mean that it's very unpleasant when you're standing still?

Man, this Jeanne Socrates lady is one of the coolest sailors in the world if you ask me. She just left Cape Horn/Fauklands after repairs from the knockdown and is headed toward the Cape of Good Hope/Cape Town. She's currently less than 1000 miles from Cape Town.

One inspirational singlehanding chick.
