Departed Eden

Position: Off Twofold Bay
Course: North nor’east Speed: 1.5 knots
Wind: South west F2 gentle breeze
Sea: slight Swell: North east 1.5 meters
Weather: overcast, cool

A southerly change is due through early tomorrow, a bit stronger than I would ideally like, but it will do. We have weighed anchor, virtually drifted our way out of Twofold Bay against a short steep horrible swell, making for an equally short sharp roll. There is just enough wind to keep the sails full with only the odd heavy slat. Soon I am sure we will have more than enough to keep them full and taut.

All is well.
