The log gives the wind as NbW and the course WbN; speed 3.4 knots over most of the time the entry appears to refer to. That’s all I have I’m afraid. Hope it helps.

I wonder how much significance one should also give to Quilliam’s reference to her straight sides. To a layman that looks more likely to affect her tendency to pitch rather than to roll.
