Fast sailing! Sun/Mon 8/9 July07...POSTSCRIPT

Sitting watching the sunset with a mug of tea in my hand, wondering where today's strong wind got to.... We've been mainly ambling along since this morning, with the odd gust of wind pushing us up to 6 or more, rather than around 4.5-5kn! (Presently 11knots of SE wind, boatspeed 4.6, SOG 5.7 (that fair current doing a good job!).... 5 mins later: wind SSE 14kn, boatspeed 5.2, SOG 6.3 - up & down all day!)

I forgot to add statistics for last two days:

24hr distances run to midday(by log): Sun:137 n.ml Mon: 147 n.ml

Monday midday (EST) posn: 15 48'S, 150 18'E Distance to Cairns: 278 n.ml.

E.T.A. Cairns: early Wed morning 10th July '07
