16miles from the start of the channel into Dampier. The channel is 17miles long! We expect to be on a mooring in another 5-6 hrs. !4kts of wind and as usual since leaving Darwin it is right on the nose.It has been a nice day sailing with fair wind on a flat sea with only a small swell. Once we get to the channel we will bear away onto a broad reach and the tide will be with us.
