02 Dec Finally
Finally, after what seemed an age, we get a change in tweather and our course is more east than west.
I am making the most of it as the Gsmbier Islands lie almost due south. They are not to be trifled with as they are a string of relatively low lying coral atolls. My waypoint is Pitcairn to the east and south of the Gambiers and I need all the help I can get to clear them.
Unfortunately, I’ve been pushed by the beefed up SE trades into a bit of a high pressure ridge and the wind is almost certainly going to die. Or go very light and NE’ly which might be worse.
But for now, come what may, there is much gladness aboard Seaburban. Even Salty descended from his perch and looked outside. He didn’t say so, but he looked pleased.
