Our last night at sea. ETA Bundaberg 6-8pm Sunday. Have had very light winds since Chesterfield reef - stunning place. Now got the motors pumping but fuel consumption will need to be watched. Getting excited! Sent from Iridium Mail & Web.

You could call out the RACQ to bring a litre of fuel. Well, maybe not. Break out the oars???? Enjoy your landfall. Greg
