Hard on the wind, mid Bass St. at roughly half way. Just woken from first real sleep since we started, snug and warm under new Sea rug – One of the things that really work. Full main and #1 and lumpy sea. there are some boats out here I wouldn’t like to be on in this – sitting on the rail all the way and wet and uncomfortable. Iff this holds, we will get to Tasman Island late tomorrow with a real possibility of a New Year’s eve party in Hobart. Fingers crossed.

Time to make a cuppa and dunk a gaggle of McVities, then full party gear and on watch for 2 hours. We work a staggered system so that we do the first hour with one person and the second with another. Makes for variety and the time goes more quickly.
