With the wind just east of north and Sylph running square, overnight we were pushed to the east of our rhumb line, so this morning I gybed onto the starboard tack. The wind is now once more veering into the north east, so I expect that we will gybe back onto the port tack sometime later today.

We continue to make good progress in the gentle fair breeze.

1,840 nm to Fiji, 3,590 nm to Sydney.

All is well.
