We have made the turn toward brisbane. Almost past the southern point of
new caledonia. Had a good run yesterday. topped out at 9.1 knots.
mostly sat on 7.8-8.3 knots The close N-E swell is encouraging us to
keep up the pace.
Last night darren saw a tear in the main. so we reefed it till it was
safe for the night and took it down this morning. Out came the sewing
machine. We had it back up in an hour. Looks like it caught on
something but I cant find what.
Fish seem to be nearly non existant. except for the few bites that have
taken the lures completly or just failed to catch them. We will try
another type of lure I think. Darren is getting inventive as we speak.
However we have banned him from tying fishing knots.
I made bread. it wasnt a complete disaster
