We haven't gone completely thru the frontal boundry yet....We're making good speed, just not in the right direction! Every now and then the sun peeks thru; great for the solar panels, although we usually do fine with the ambient light of a completely overcast day. There's not really much else to report; all's well aboard. Our friends Kim & Sharon, along with their friend Harold as crew, are on the sv Georgia J, a Passport 47, and are doing fine also; they're about 150 nm ahead of us and should reach Port Bundaberg about one day before we do.
