Distance run day 1: 148nm (22-hour run)

We left the Horn Island anchorage at 1400 hours yesterday and bade farewell to Australia. The passage to Debut in the Kei Islands, eastern Indonesia is downwind most of the way and we made excellent time running under poled out twin headsails. Our 24-hour run recorded at 1400 today was one of our better ones at 164 nmiles. There was quite a big swell running, so not the most comfortable passage, but a lot of nmiles under the keel.
