We have more wind than we would like but it one of those wonderful, sunny, sparkling days that make it a pleasure to be at sea. Coping with the rolling is still a problem. Last night Sue opened one of the overhead lockers and three cannisters of cuscus, rice and red beans jumped out and spread themselves over the galley floor. This proved that we need a proper vacuum cleaner and STABILIZERS!
Bruce, our ever reliable weather forecaster, is back in Perth after a holiday in Europe. He is telling us that conditions will gradually moderate as we get closer to Brisbane. Fortunately there is nothing extreme in the forecast area.
