After waving goodbye to the SY Kira, we left Tanna on sunday afternoon. We first sailed around the south tip and now we’re heading towards the north of New Caledonia. Yeh – sailing to Brisbane isn’t exactly straight forward. NewCal is completely in the way and there are several huge banks and reefs on the way. So we’ll use the ‘Grand Pass’ in the NW of NewCal and then go south, over the Landsdowne bank, around the Bellona reef and finally towards our destination.
We have good wind and make fantastic progress on our final voyage.
LATITUDE: 19-30.87S, LONGITUDE: 168-07.04E, COURSE: 269T, SPEED: 6.5, WIND: ESE5, MILES TO DEST.: 946nm (minus NewCal)
