And today’s fix: DB: 111, 8333, GPS 117, 45/65. We are heading south east to try to stay with the northerly airflow for as long as possible and – with a bit of luck – ride it round as it backs to the west. Wood is being touched and fingers are crossed. And Pete is making bacon and eggs. Life could be worse – I’m glad we missed the front. If we get lucky, those that follow will have moved below us by the time they get across to us. We intend to stay at about 34 S until we get almost across, and then we will assess the best latitude to run.
