Day 6, NZ to Brisbane, Australia

Monday, June 2

Current conditions: Wind/weather - currently WSW 18 knots, Sunny with a few squalls, Temp 65 degrees Sea state - SW swell, 4 to 5 ft, 10 sec and wind chop. Boat speed/course - 5.5 knots under single reefed main, Stay sail and Yankee. Course: 280 degrees

This morning the "slow sunny gentle ride across calm seas at the leisurely rate" ended. At 5:00am a really nasty squall caught up with us, and had us busy shortening the sails. The first part of today kept on being squally, but it is getting better now. We still expect, and really really hope, that we will get into some easterlies by tonight or tomorrow. The forecast keeps on showing them just to the north of us, but they remain elusive. The fresh wind we have now at least helps us to put some miles under the keel. The first few days at sea were a great start, moral-wise, we could not have hoped for better one. But progress was a bit on the slow, or leisurely side. A gentle reminder that we should get going came yesterday afternoon, (Day 5), when I was putting a CD in the stereo. I inadvertently hit the AM button and the radio tuned to a station in NZ. Hmmm I guess we are still pretty close to NZ.
