So we’re back in the roaring fourties!  Although such a benign sea coming across the Bass Strait you wouldn’t have thought it!  We had near perfect conditions up until around 11pm when the wind dropped we had to put the engine on.   Saw a couple of whales (possibly pilot but some difference of opinion amongst the crew!) and a few albatross.   Had about 5 hours of motor sailing under a full moon and starry night before dropping the hook at around 5am in Bryans corner on the west side of the Freycinet Peninsular and tried to catch up on sleep. Foggy this morning but hopefully the sun will burn it off.  The sand in the bay is so white it looks like snow!


Total miles Eden to Freycinet Peninsular:   336

Time taken:  44.5 hours

Average speed: 7.55 knots
