Another day of a few miles won to the South after a night of South Westerlies and a day of light South Easterlies. A good blow can't be too far away and as long as we don't run out of time we're still a chance to sail all the way to Port Hedland. The crew is trying to achieve this, and it will be an achievement considering there is a deadline to be met. We've been seeing whales every day of late. Today we saw one leap out of the water about 300 metres from the ship. The splash was enormous -- it was very impressive even from so far away. These "small" distractions are very welcome at the moment when the wind is lacking and we don't feel as though we are making significant progress. At least everyone on board is well and in good spirits.
