Dear Friends and Family,
We are under way as of 0930 local time this morning.
Conditions are boisterious as expected.
We believe the winds and seas will start to move aft the beam by tomorrow morning, but in the meantime, it\’s a bit of a Mr. Toad\’s Wild ride!
Gray and COLD for us! (75 deg F or 24 deg C) seems like Winter not Summer (which it is down under!)
Lumpy seas on a 10 foot (3 meter) swell, forward of the beam isn\’t a lot of fun, but today should be the bad day of the entire trip – we hope!
Light rain, moist and cool will make for some heavy clothes in the evenings.
Not much else to report for now.
Just hanging on…:-)
Scott and Nikki
