A little bit more....

In about 68 miles we'll be north of the australian mainland - Berri for the second time - first time in the South Alantic. and through the Solomons Gate and out onto the course proper. In Marathon terms, 42185 metres to go, one at a time. Out here, 4315 miles - the numbers have a sort of symmetry! Also one at a time.

balmy day, wind all day. Lovely. Moon now up, stars dimmed and the sea getting a bit lumpy. Just had another bath in the cockpit - days really sweaty.

More on the Polynesian migration later. Stuff to do on deck.
