Going round in circles

Since last night Pinta has basically just gone round in a big circle. It looks like the control system has been flipping between thinking it can sail directly to the waypoint and not being able to. This is probably combined with heavy seas which are probably making steering very difficult and meaning it can take 10 minutes to actually get settled on a new course. To make things even more worrying we have not been more than 4 nautical miles from the Skellig Islands, two rather large and very rocky islands just off the coast.
