Last night we crossed a Southerly front which produced winds up to 28kts and a very short and choppy cross sea. It was not at all comfortable. Fortunately the strong winds only lasted a couple of hours and by morning the sea had flattened. We are now rolling along in calm seas with a gentle swell. The only casualty was our esky (chilly bin) which must have left us sometime during the night...wellstocked with beer, tonic and soda water.
We expect to get to the Oyster Island resort on Espiritu Santo about mid afternoon tomorrow.
