Noon Position: 35 52.5 S  150 15.4 E
Course: South Speed: 6 knots
Wind: NE   F4 - moderate breeze
Sea: slight  Swell: E / 1m
Weather: overcast, warm
Day’s Run: 94 nm

We are off to a good start. We were slowed down after midnight with light winds and a residual sea that left Sylph flopping around, sails slatting, for several hours, but now a moderate nor-easterly has returned and we are back to running wing-on-wing at a steady six knots.   A southerly change is due to arrive later this afternoon by which time, with a bit of luck, I hope to be entering Narooma. We will hole up there for a couple of days until the wind turns favourable again, likely Thursday.

All is well.
