The gale which Andrew rode out over the last couple of days have cost him about 4 days headway he reckons.  Even so he is clear he made the correct decision to move North out of the path of the centre of the low and the highest winds.   Elsi never has been able to make any headway against headwinds which means the prevalent North Westerlies restrict Andrew; he cannot steer her in the direction he would ideally choose to go in which is North Westerly!  However, at the moment he is able to take a Westerly course at last with an Easterly wind and for a few hours soon, he will also have the advantage of a Southerly wind.
