ONE DAY TO CHRISTMAS

21 August 2011 | About 70 miles to Christmas Island

ETA Christmas Island = mid morning tomorrow, the 22 of August AU time and date. As I proceed now on this final day, Cairns to Christmas, I am in fact trying to slow down as I dont want to arrive in the dark and then have to wait in what could be strong seas. Better to keep going, slowly and try to time it. I actually am crisscrossing the rhumb line and on one 'criss' its extremely uncomfortable as Im exactly at cross purposes with the waves. But tonight I will do the 'cross' and it should be better. Im also dragging a warp to slow her down and gives me practice deploying such. An anchoring nightmare may await. They apparently have only two moorings and one just broke loose with its latest boat attached. It is a deep anchorage with a coral bottom just waiting to eat ones anchor...ie it gets caught under a coral ledge and well...one has to leave the anchor...so am a bit apprehensive. Why a place as rich as Australia cant put down more than two moorings is beyond me. And they are not free to us, either. Well, will check in tomorrow from what I hope will be a fine situation.

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!
