1400 hours Thursday 20th
We have had a light S wind on the nose all day which means the motor has been moving us along. It's been a good day with mostly clear skies and I am hoping it stays that way tonight as it's a full moon and it's great to sail at night in these conditions. We have 148 nautical miles to Eden which will be our departure point to cross Bass Straight. At our current speed of 6 knots we will be there at about 1600 hours tomorrow. I prepared 3 meals before we left and Bob brought one on board so its chicken curry tonight. WE have seen lots of porpoises today but they are not too interested in us.
0900 hours Friday 21st
Currently south of Bermagui and have just started the motor due to light winds. We sailed most of the night with just a single reef in the main. We are using a 2 hour watch system that gives you a 4 hour stretch off watch to sleep and this worked well last night.
