Heading in the Right Direction (for now)

Course:
South west, Speed: 6 knots
Wind:
West nor' west F4 moderate breeze
Weather:
Overcast, mild
Day's run: 40 miles

 

Light winds dominated much of yesterday and failed us completely overnight such that we drifted with sails down from 9 pm to 4 am. Now we have some wind again, from a favourable angle even, so we are able to make good the course required for Coffs Harbour - 425 miles to go.

A cold front will be with us sometime tomorrow, more headwinds ahead.

Time to shorten sail.

All is well.
