25th May 2009.
We are close to the magic 30 S where the ocean turns blue and dolphins play in your bow wave – yeah right. At least the water temperature has improved from a miserly 12 to 22 degrees and I’m not wearing 2 layers of thermal knickers. We have been motor/sailing as the wind is too light for anything else. It’s a new moon and the stars wash across heavens in a waterfall of light. That is the magic of a clear pacific night.
