Onward we progress towards Darwin. Good breeze today averaging ~8kts with 2 reefs in main, and #3 headsail. The sea state has moderated and appart from the odd larger beam on wave makes for fast comfortable sailing. Caught another small tuna last evening, so we have plenty of foodand continue to eat well.
I have been studying the tides carefully, and we need to be off Cape Don by daylight Friday which we should be able to do, and this would give us a fairly swift ride into Darwin.........we will see!
Distance to Darwin 352nm
