DB: 128,8440 gps 102! This will be hard to write – Berri moving so violently – rolling, pitching gyrating – braced at nav table but precarious and likely to be thrown out any time. Steady 35 kt from east, trivial in most circumstances but huge confused swell, #4 only no main, #5 would be better but coping – just. Moving about massive effort – have to brace with both hands & feet, find balance, transfer one grip at a time and hold on during the worst rolls. Several more days likely. Will pass fairly close to Henry. Feeling every crash and judder and shake and groan. Awful. Berri unhappy too.
