As evening wore on the breeze freshened and with it broad on our beam, Sylph romped along at a steady seven knots. So we have made pretty good time over the past 24 hours. We are now running square up the Gulf of St Vincent, the seas sparkling blue in the clear sunshine and the dusty grey-brown hills of South Australia’s ancient dry coastline rolling by to starboard. We have a berth lined up at the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron courtesy of an old Navy friend – thank you Mark – where we should arrive around midnight.

All is well.
