En Route from New Caledonia to Coffs Harbour
UTC 19.40 UTC
Current Position 24.32S 161.38E
Distance traveled 300nm
Wind speed 20kts SE
We departed the lagoon in light winds with dolphins escorting us for a hour, one of which was quite a character, rolling over on his back and smiling at us and then stuck his tongue out! it was great to watch them.
Winds were light to start and we made slow progress at first but then the winds built to 17-20kts from the south with a nice current pushing us along. The seas built and unfortunately the current switched around and came on our nose so we have slowed down.
We are aiming to make landfall in Sydney but the current weather predictions make this unlikely so we will aim for either Coffs Harbour or New Castle.
All is well onboard
