Wind: South sou' east, F5 strong breeze
Sea: moderate, Swell: 2 meters south-west
Weather: sunny, mild

A large high pressure system has moved into the Great Australian Bight bringing us some nice fresh south to south-east winds in a near cloudless sky, which we have been able to run before wing on wing, a double reefed mainsail to starboard and a partially furled jib poled to port. We have made a good run over the last 24 hours and I can confidently predict that we will be in home waters later today and will probably make Robe tomorrow.

All is well.
