We have made it to Bundaberg safe and well. Currently at the marina. Thank you both for the coverage and forecasting...
on passage to bundaberg and hoping to arrive before too much troughing so the pedal is to the metal!
Hard to hear but did hear all well on board on their way to Aus
At 071630 they were 90 miles from Chesterfield Reef. They will be there enjoying the bird life for the next couple of days. Thanks Peter at Maritime Radio for the report.
Plan is to stay a few hours at Huon so that their arrival at Chesterfield will be in daylight Monday. Bravo will be coming in behind them.
Sounds good and crew enjoyed the moon last night. heading to Chesterfield then Bundy. Left yesterday afternoon from Luganville bound to Bundaberg
Lamen Bay and moving to Malakula for the wind change
Yee Ha. They are 3nm off the corner to enter Port resolution. They slowed the boat down to have daylight for the entry. Quite a few rally boats have left so there will be plenty of room. GPS is off so no exact position. They must be saving power. Hopefully Cheryl has advised Customs but if not they will sort that out on arrival. Might have to truck over to Lanakai. The sat picture looks like it might be a good clear night for the mountain but then again they might want to sleep.
PS position came in later. Great signal on that boat.
The important news is that their eta Tanna is midnight, Cheryl. They have had a fairly sporty weekend with gusts up to 37kt but crew and boat handled it well and Steve sounded quite pleased with all the excitement and the fact that all got handled well. Boat is in good shape. We discussed lanakai but that anchorage is rolly and uncomfortable so better to go to Port resolution. A good many of the raly boats have left to go north so that will leave plenty of space.
from NZ Maritime radio. All well on board.
Position via NZ Maritime Radio. 1845 Sat night. Patricia cannot work out how to change the date and time!
now preparing for a couple of days of stronger winds. crew all OK and they are making good progress.
All well as got more sleep last night. Did a 175 mile day. Apologies from Patricia who made an error in the longitude yesterday. I was trying to work out how come they had done so many miles. Not a problem with the computer program. I put in 168 instead of 158! They have been advised to eat your food today Cheryl as tomorrow swell will be 3.5m so just as well the sea sick crew is now OK.
keeping busy. Caught 1 bonito. One crew is a bit sea sick but otherwise all well. Conditions look like they will get a bit sporty next monday
Great signal from their radio. You were right Cheryl!. All well on board
