I'm now hunting miles down in my search for land. It's been 51 days now since I last sighted land. There is 259 miles to South East Cape at the bottom of Tassie, the last of the five Capes to round. We should be there about lunch time on Thursday. If I'm lucky, I might sight terra firma on Wednesday afternoon. We have a NNW breeze at 20-25 knots and are sliding along nicely. I'll have to be extra vigilant for other boats now.

Take care,

Tony Mowbray
