Gene and Bill texted us to report that COG 194 T, SOG 5.5kts in 12kts ESE, less than 0.5m swell. Warm, sunny day, lovely sailing conditions after moonlit night. All good on board.

Later from GHRadio. A bit of a problem reported by Gene in that the SSB wont TX but they can hear. They are in company with two other boats and we have Astarte coming in well on the ham net to make updates if need be.
