The wind has finally abated some and we are powering along doing 6-7knots under a triple reefed main and 20% genoa. The aim of the exercise is to be through the Jomard Passage into the Louisiades by about mid-afternoon tomorrow. Another night at sea after tonight probably won't go down too well with the crew.
Today has been a bit of a no-day, with everyone going into hibernation to ride out the rough weather. Kids weren't even interested in a DVD!
Everyone is going well, looking forward to cold beer and hot shower at anchor tomorrow night,
Until then, like Porky Pig... Ba da ba da badats all folks!
