At last we have enjoyed some favourable winds. For much of last night we coasted along under the drifter and mainsail on a close reach with smooth seas and a slight swell. We had to negotiate some oil rigs but apart from that it was a very relaxing night.

Now the wind has headed us and we are close hauled tacking our way towards Wilson’s Promontory.Once again It is slow going but at least we are sailing.

All is well.
