Onward and upward...

Two more passages see me in Whitby. 300 miles completed and with the exception of 2 hours the winds have been consistently against me. All the sailors I speak to who have sailed in the same direction as me are cursing the persistence of these horrible winds.
It seriously feels like they are taunting me. Every time I need to go in one direction or another (NW, N or NE), that's where the damn wind is coming from. Whinge whinge. C'est la vie. Besides, I reckon I'm doing pretty well as I've only resorted to 35% motoring time (which is a very good ratio). If it's at all feasible I will sail.
