Day 20 from Hobart

Saturday 19th May 2012

Mix of nice sunshine and rainclouds giving windshifts but no rain. Swell still quite big at 3m.

Pair of White-chinned petrels were close by for most of the day - not seen those for quite a time but this pair have been around for several days now. Also a solitary juvenile albatross again, soaring in the distance - unmistakeable, despite not seeing it very close to.

Another day concentrating on weather downloads and resultant sailing tactics. With another Low forming close to SSE of us, at I'm not keen to repeat the experience of a few days' back so I'm trying to manoeuvre us out of the problem area if possible
