Wind at last – and from the SW! All we need is for it to hold for 36 hours and we’ll be right up there. We are heading in towards Merimbula and we will hug the shore all the way up from there – current seems to be negligible until Bateman’s Bay so not too much lost on the way. If it holds, we won’t need a pit stop – we have about 90 litres left in the diesel tanks.

Mixed emotions – soon we will see mainland Oz for the first time since the S2H last year and then Sydney in a couple of days. Whooosh and it’s all gone and soon after, the old faithful bus shelter in the studio will be gone too. Sad, but a real sense of pride as well. Heads down, bums up as we turn Berri around – will be a hectic few days and then, I hope, a little island of calm on christmas day before we do it all over. Hope it’s a really slow race, but I don’t like our chances.
