Nearing land

At Sea – Friday 28 September

Since we left Whittier, we have been enjoying 25 hours each day.  Today we are one hour in front of Sydney time and by Sunday we will be one hour behind.

Another sunny day this morning.  2,098 nautical miles done with 1,021 to go.  Sea conditions are ‘slight’. Sea temperature is 10.0C and the air temperature 10.8C.  The chill factor seems to have dissipated.

We attended another presentation on China but think there is something about the Princess Theatre that induces sleep.

An Irish comedian and a pianist this evening.
At Sea – Saturday 29 September

Overnight the seas became rougher despite the captain negotiating his way around a low pressure system.   2,630 nautical miles done with 489 to go.  The captain was trying yesterday to move ahead in case the low forced him to slow down.  Sea conditions are ‘moderate’. Sea temperature is 14.0C and the air temperature 15.1C. 

We are planning to watch the AFL Grand Final this afternoon.
