For Berrimilla's first circumnavigation, the International Space Station
and the North West Passage, go to

We're just south east of Cape Raoul - Storm Bay having been its usual obstreperous self with blasts and holes and rain - the works. Should all blow away this evening. But no fun going to windward after all those months of the easy stuff.

There are dolphins around and a Black Browed Albatross - and lots of Gannety birds once again pretending to be albatrosses.

From here to Sydney I will use Australian Eastern Daylight Saving Time which is UTC + 11. The laptop is set to this time as well - using the backup as the original seems to be a dead parrot.

We should round Tasman Island and turn north in a couple of hours, all going well. For the Sydneysiders and those who can get the internet stream, we might be on breakfast radio with Adam Spencer tomorrow - but at 0545 ish.
