Pre Wash Settings on Campagne de France

Miranda Merron reports in this morning from on board Campagne de France. She has enjoyed respite and time to recover before this new cold front and low arrives. After the first couple of days of conditions where crampons or sticky pads (like tree frogs) on all four limbs would have been useful, and perhaps a versatile tail too, yesterday was almost a holiday in the light airs of the ridge. No pot-holes in the sea, no spray on deck, two layers of waterproof clothing peeled off, saltwater paddling pool inside boat emptied one last time (water from foulies and wet sail bags), minor repairs effected. I ate two hot meals, the first two since the start on Sunday.
However, there is a new low to the north and a cold front on its way, so it's back to upwind for today, the boat is gently slamming  in the waves already, and it's not even windy yet. The "terrace" is on pre-wash setting, still useable but damp and sloping at 30 degrees.
Just need to get through the next few hours unscathed...
