Title: Day 12 - Headwinds. Slow progress again

Date: 15 Nov 2007, 1100 local time (GMT +13)
Position: 29:56.3S 174:37.1E
Day's run: 76 nm
Course: var
Distance to run: 320 nm

Headwinds again, with lumpy seas we tack through 140 degrees (!) and cannot
make any effective southing.

At the moment we're motoring, but it is frustrating.

The boat is COVERED in salt and we've (re)discovered leaks in various places over bunks (mine, Jonty's), clothes lockers (all of Jonty's clothes are sodden in salt water) and other less irksome ones. It's also cold, for the first time in my life I'm wearing borrowed ladies' thermals! (first time for thermals of either gender!).
