Day 3

Cloud cover and gentle NNW breezes were still present when the sun rose at 5.05am this morning, Alan is off watch, Dad just got up after sleeping since midnight and I will retire after I have the hot cuppa that Dad has just made me!

We are 20nm East of Coffs Harbour, and just gone through another log on with VMR Coffs Harbour as VMR Byron Bay has lost our tracking sheet, thank God we were all right through the night! Smoky Cape is 5hour 43mins away. As the day progresses we will be learning more about our electronics, the pilothouse is strewn with numerous manuals to flick through, and I am still trying to fix the Airmar system interfacing with Vista on the PC. Not easy! We have now travelled 214 nautical mile since leaving Brisbane in beautiful conditions.
