Alongside in Exmouth. We were only going to stop for fuel and then leave as soon as possible, but the locals have been so welcoming we'll stay until 1200 tomorrow.
It's been a very warm day for the last day of winter and we've spent most of it under iron topsails watching nearly 100 whales playing all around us. It can be a hard life sometimes.
A night ashore and alongside should rest up everyone for the 240 miles to our next stop at Carnarvon. It looks as though much of it will be with iron topsails, so we will need our resilience to see us through.
