We enjoyed another good day's run yesterday and some very pleasant sailing. Now, at four p.m. (it has taken me a while to get around to writing this), we are rounding Cape Jervis. Unfortunately I allowed us to get too close in to the Cape so we are caught in its wind shadow and are making only slow progress, but. looking at the forecast, once we are clear of the Cape we should get a nice easterly breeze for the rest of today and this evening. If this proves correct then I reckon we should be alongside Marina Adelaide some time early tomorrow morning.

All is well.
