Title: Day 20 - Slow but steady progress

Date: 12 June 2007, 1200 local time (GMT -9)
Position: 09:33.5S 133:07.1W
Day's run: 102nm
Course: 251
Distance to run: 334nm

It's all been quite slow for the last 24 hours. We've been under chute
alone in light E'ly winds that prevent us making our course exactly. But
the upside is that life on the boat is a little more civilised as we are not
heeling or rolling too much.

The night watches were peaceful, very starry!

Boats from our SSB net have now started arriving in the Marquesas, we reckon
we still have 3 or 4 days to go...

We've put the clocks back by an hour again today, so we're now 9 hours behind GMT, 10 behind BST.
