1200 Position: 39 59.8 S 142 38.6 E
Course: Southeast Speed: 6 knots
Wind: Northwest F5 moderate breeze
Sea: moderate Swell: south west 2.5 m
Weather: Mostly sunny, mild
Day’s run: 146 m

Our reaching breeze has veered further round to the northwest so that now it is a running breeze and we are wing on wing and square before it. We are also a little south of our planned track, but that is OK as we have another front coming through in the morning which will put the wind back into the south. By then, at our current rate of progress, we should be approaching the northwest corner of Tasmania.
Now it is time to gybe.
All is well.
