Friday 17th February.
Day two. It seemed to take a long time for the Sydney skyline to drop beneath the horizon. There was no lack of favourable wind but a current was setting us back. How infuriating to see 8+ knots on the speedo and 6 on the SOG. There are worse problems. What a lightening trip to Sydney, financially as well as quick. One night in Birkenhead Point marina cost $100. ouch. Repaired sails returned and my front tooth re glued on. So far so good. the wind is fair and the seas are blue.
