Day 13

Hi all

Yesterday was a positioning day, to put ourselves in the right spot for the next low that is coming through. We needed to get further south not to miss out on the best conditions. We gybed south twice to take advantage of slight windshifts towards the west. The gybes south on starboard were not pleasant at all on a trimaran with the swell near the beam shaking the boat around. Now back on port gybe, the swells are right behind us, and we are surfing smoothly from one swell to the's not as fast and furious as before the Cape of Good Hope, but still over 30 knots most of the time, and low stress on the boat - she has done amazingly so far..

Hopefully we now stay on this gybe and in this wind as far as the Kerguelens in about 2 days time..

Just changed mealtimes around to account for heading east towards the sunrise. So instead of having breakfast we now made lunch at 0800..
