The wind has eased and backed further into the south west allowing us to set a bit more sail and start making some ground at last towards Australia. This morning I popped the dodger window back in place, though it will undoubtedly pop out again if we get another gale, which is quite likely before we make landfall. And I have broken the sextant out of its box again to continue finding our way by the heavens.

All is well.
