Title: Sailing to Christmas Island

Clocks Go Back Clock
We must be getting closer, we are now in the same time zone as Christmas Island. As you know, every degree of longitude we go west is four minutes closer to British Time (GMT), so every fifteen degrees we alter our watches by an hour, so that we are on local time when we arrive.
 
Wind Thumbs up
Good progress, the wind is blowing and the forecast is for it to keep blowing until we are there. We hope to arrive in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The earliest we are allowed to call customs is 0700. I guess they need their sleep too, it doesn't do to upset them as we may be in the same bar in the evening.
 
Miles travelled in the last 24 hours: 131 miles
Miles to Christmas island: 268 miles
