Underway Again

After several hours at anchor waiting for the wind shift it finally came. Weird to anchor 3 miles offshore but did not want to drop by mistake on the Great Barrier Reef. Plus, the further one goes in, the further one must sail out. Fair winds and following seas 🙂

We have been making about 1.5 knots for the last 6 hours. The sails are banging, the waves are a foot or less, we have a full moon and the rest of the sky is fiiied with stars.what are the three old salts doing? Listening to Maria Callas singing arias. Priceless. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters. Sent via Inmarsat. The mobile satellite company

Crazy day. Becalmed for 3 hours. Put up asym was able to make way in very light air. At sunset wind increased to 30 knots and stayed that way until dawn. It finally moderated to 15. We are entering the area of the intertropical convergance zone. Fair winds and following seas. Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters.
