A very pleasant day on th high seas heading towards Cairn. Unfortunately this morning the wind died out, so we have been motoring for most of the day. As I write the breeze is beginning to fill in from the SSE - not perfect, but we will be able to sail (hopefully) through the night and make good our track.
The big event of the day was the 80cm mahi Mahi which Graham caught - unfortunately the trae wire broke as we were getting it onboard and it got away - though not without photos and video to prove the catch.
At this stage we will make Cairns sometime tomorrow night - too late for customs and quarantine, so we will clear on first thing Friday morning.
Until tomorrow, TTFN
