Made a quick trip up here to spend a final night with Silver Fox one-on-one before the rally depart New Cal sometime early next week. The trip here was downwind and very quick, about an hour with a small hankie of headsail out. We now have to do the same distance back against the wind and into a short steep sea. A couple of hours of pain is worth spending the fina opportunty with our cruising mates.
The weather window for a departure for Australia appears to be opening next week - hopefully we should be able to get away Thursdayish.
P.S. Photos are coming soon!
