Heading in the right direction at last! Cate has stated a definate preference for being less well heeled than we have been hard on the breeze since departure from Sydney!
Allan continues to sleep for Australia, shame it isn't an olympic sport. He has now been renamed "Sir Sleepalot". Clearly the sea air is having the desired effect.
Weather conditions have calmed down significantly and we are under a full press of canvas making good miles towards NZ. All things being equal we should pass the half-way mark sometime late tomorrow, or early Monday from whence it is "all down hill". The weather is looking pretty good out to the 96 hour point, hopefully we will make it across without any further headwinds.
