70 miles SE of Gabo – Bass Strait like the pond at CYC – not an angel’s fluff anywhere – oily calm, we’ve been motoring @ 4 kts for 24 hours at least and burning lots of diesel. We will almost certainly need a pit stop somewhere – probably Eden – to get some more. Damn. Tuesday morning now looking like the earliest we can make it.

Happy Birthday El – will try satphone lateer
