Ship's Log:
Our wind finally arrived early today rather
than later in the afternoon. Somewhere north of Point No Point a terrific
westerly began to build. Within an hour or so it was up to 15kts and shortly
after we were racing along at over ten knots under main, main topsail, fore,
fore topsail, jib and jumbo. At 1400hrs we took in the topsails and double
reefed the main which gave us more confidence with the building wind. The wind
was up to 30kts in the gusts and we were still at 10+ knots, just the sail we
needed today. Everyone was thrilled with the day. We are now anchored in Pedder
Bay and have just finished barbecuing smokies for dinner. Talent night is
about to begin as is mug up, tonight looks like another long one. We have a
memorable trip with this group which will make goodbyes tomorrow

Patchy cloud, windy
