Sailing into a 50 KNOT GALE- Worst Storm We’ve Ever Seen- Sailing SV Delos Ep. 93

Sailing to Madagascar we get hit by the biggest gale we’ve ever seen. We’re about 240 miles East of the northern cape of Madagascar when the GRIB files start to show a compressed pressure gradient and forecasts of 30-40 knots.
We shorten sail and prepare for the rough weather. The forecast is way too low and we end up seeing 50 knots of wind and 7-10M (20-30 ft) waves during the worst part of it, which of course happens at night. The crew gets tossed around like crazy and everyone is forced to stay in their bunks while Capt. Breeyawn and The Braidster take 30 minute shifts hand steering down the waves all night long. It’s a really intense experience but Delos is a strong boat and takes very good care of us.
