Noon Position: 39 04.3 S  146 47.8 E
Course: SW  Speed: 4 knots
Wind: NNE – F4 moderate breeze
Sea: slight  Swell: SE 1 meters
Weather: sunny, mild
Day’s run: 95 nm

We have continued to make good progress over the last 24 hours and Bass Strait thus far has been kind to us.  We spent most of the night running before a gentle NE breeze, Sylph surprisingly stable and quiet while still averaging around four knots.  This morning the breeze has backed a little further into the north, so I have dropped the pole and we are broad reaching towards Wilsons Promontory which we should round late this afternoon.

All is well.
