The best day’s sailing for a longtime – almost low flying. We’ve had 20-25 knots since lunchtime and we’re now well south of Montagu, estimating Green Cape around 0500 and Bass Strait a couple of hours later. Sea rising and we’re rolling a bit – complacency wake up call – have just flooded the cockpit and dropped several buckets into the saloon so, too late, we’ve put the storm board in. Starboard quarterberth a bit wet but ok otherwise. I’m about to be on watch – gotta go.
