Last night brought drizzle and E-ENE winds, necessitating many changes of course and adjustments (sounds like a familiar refrain...) But, the good news is that we're abeam of the Sandy Cape light (our position is S24deg20min/E153deg10min) and have about 48 nm to the marina! If the wind holds, we should be there around 10-11PM local Aus time. We both need a good night's sleep, and expect to see Officialdom tomorrow morning. More later.
