PERFECT WEATHER CALLS/PERFECT WEATHER

17 September 2010 | In the Coral Seas heading to 'Bundy'(Bundaberg Australia)

The weather calls: CLYDE(my friend and colleague):"All looking most favorable today. You should have some S backing to E with plenty enough speed for a nice sail... tomorrow S 10-15, Sat E10-15, Sun NE10, all good. enjoy it, pleasant sail."

McDavitt:"There is a problem with the weather over next few days--- large SSW swells from the Southern Ocean are likely to get as far north as our location over the weekend . These should be long period waves, so may be more gentle than they look,but larger than you may have seen before on this voyage."

Well, it was a perfect day, winds just as Clyde predicted and the 'large' swells, as per McDavitt, have indeed started.

This morning after a night of no wind, I awoke to a magnificence I had not seen before. Completely flat seas, a tiny ripple, identical in all directions as far as the eye could see, covered this surface like a carpet, just under came these slowly undulating swells of about 15 feet, gently lifting Shearwater and then slowly letting her down the other side. Now, as night approaches, once again we sail directly into the western setting sun.

About:
Mango is a smart, funny, sensitive and totally unique wheaton/sheepdog. . He is my partner on this patently undoglike voyage but remains cheerful about the whole affair. [...]
Extra: Shearwater is a 47 foot, very sleek and light catamaran. She is part of a fleet of 11 that were built - its a sister ship of Shearwater that holds the unofficial speed record. 31 knots! Of the this fleet, only one has flipped...so we are on the side of good odds!
