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.
Had a bit of wind, now light. Very lumpy sea. I have to hang on in the helm seat! About 15nm to go before we're in Australian waters. Yippee! Then approx 200nm to Bundaberg. Looking forward to a rum! Sent from Iridium Mail & Web.
