A Strong Fair Breeze and an Excellent Day’s Run

Noon Position: 37 19.7 S 150 03.3 E
Course: N Speed 7 knots
Wind: SW – F5 Fresh Breeze
Sea: slight
Swell: negligible
Weather: cloudy, mild
Day’s Run: 177 nm

For the last twenty four hours we have been able to run wing on wing continuously before a fresh to strong south-west breeze making for an excellent day’s run. We are now round the south-eastern corner of Australia, back in New South Wales’ waters, heading north on a beam reach close into the coast so as to enjoy a more comfortable sail in the relatively calm seas. Strong winds are forecast to continue so I am looking to post another good run tomorrow though likely not as good as today’s.
