Conditions have improved and we are making good time toward Brisbane. Last night dinner met me on the stairs as I was coming up from a toilet break. Sue had put my curry and rice on the galley bench and a particularly savage roll flung it at me. As is usual on ocean crossings we are in our own small world and there is very little traffic. One yacht, without lights, and a container ship this morning are all we have seen since leaving Noumea.
Having Terry on board means we can have a three watch (3 hours on) system which works very well. Everyone gets plenty of sleep and it is comforting to know that we have a really experienced trawler skipper on board. We are still looking good for an early Monday morning arrival.
