We just crossed the northern tip of Australia!! by the time i get to Darwin i will have over 2500 miles of Australian coastal cruising, that is about both coasts of the US–and i am not 1/4 around the country, it is BIG. We have been on a forced march up the coast making 70-80 miles a day in 20-30 knots of following seas. Several times we anchored in the dark and left in the dark, it is winter here and day light is short.

We celebrated Canada Day with our Canadian crew, Alison last night and will be at sea for the 4th.

We are about to cross the Gulf of Carpentaria and will not have internet for a few days. i will give a full report when i do.
