At 11309E we will be south of the westernmost point on the Australian mainland – Steep Point in Western Australia. Less than a day at this speed! I’ve seen it many times from an Adastra Hudson. At 11508 E we will have ducked under Cape Leeuwin and Cape 4 will be in the bag. About a day and a half. We will count no chickens yet.

Fenwick – tks for update. Our best gps run so far – haven’t checked all the way back – was 176 miles for a dmg of 144. Relatively inefficient. Best DMG 156 miles, highest speed I’ve actually seen was 13.6 knots surfing off a wave near cape horn – speed from the gps, not the log, which was not accurate. Had lots over 12 since Tristan.

Chris P – look fwd to seeing you – not sure yet about Kevvo but will advise. Seems like a good idea!
