It was again the same weather situation this morning, I had to swim upwind and against the waves. But it turned out that it would not be the biggest problem. The rain had started to pick up and Maks and Jo had to bail out the rainwater as well as the water from the waves breaking into the RHIB. The storm was picking up along with the rain, too much water got on the RHIB by the battery banks and created a short.
They felt the electric pulse when they touched the inflated sides. The electric engine stopped working. At the same time, the waves were growing and breaking which made it too dangerous for a kayak to pace me. Once we got back on the deck of Seeker I wrapped myself with a survival blanket to stay warm and enjoyed the rain pouring on me.
Even though I was disappointed with the situation I felt a deep feeling of completeness rising in me, and wanted to feel the rain on my body. So I decided to strip down naked and take my shower under the natural rain. This felt fantastic, so liberating.
