Message from Heinz:

We are now in the not-to-avoid-storm ..!
Regardless of how we counted, we would end up in a (strong) storm with this crossing over the Drake Passage to Ushuaia.
The Anne-Margaretha is built on this! We have a storm jib and the 3x reefed mizze as support sail she then lies like a duckling on the (very) high waves.
Fortunately, everyone is fine and they can now take spectacular photos and videos!
The expectation is that the storm (now> 65 knots of wind) will lie down at the end of the afternoon. Then we will continue very quick to the Beagle Channel!
Everything goes well on board!
