Yesterdays storm finally subsided to a modest gale overnight. We now have énhanced ´trade winds blowing at 27 to 30 kn .The rolling is now rythymical and not unpleasant .Showers and a hot breakfast were the order of the day (skipper cooked) .We made 100nm overnight and now have 400nm to run.Should arrive Sunday when everything is closed , so it will be quarentine berth overnight somewhere in the docks-uggh.
We passed close to Suwarru;no lights  and island in darkness .Pilot adviced not a suittable place in bad weather so on we went .Shame because Penny was very keen to see it having read Tom Neills book .
