dtd 3075 so dmg 207 in about 24 hrs as we didn’t send you one yesterday. Sail finished, will try it when needed and see how well we did. If there’s a sailmaker in Dutch – and we get there – we’ll have it all undone again and properly sorted.

Not possible to say with any certainty where we will go in the next few days – wind backs in squalls for hours at a time and we’re all over the ocean. I think we will pass west of the atoll more or less on our direct track, so a bit of a climb to K’s waypoint 1. There should be enough grist in t’mill for the ETA predictors to start to get some accuracy. I’ll stick to June 3, although I think that’s optimistic.

Hot in the HellCone – Pirsig next time perhaps.
