Day 133 Herky Jerky 11/1/14

 

January 11, 2014Position: 32.42 S, 109.49 E

Saturday night. The moon is shining brightly through the port light over the nav station as I sit and write. West Wind is beating into the south east wind at about 4.5 -5 knots. The seas are short and steep making the motion herky jerky and uncomfortable. Our course is off the mark by several degrees north. I am hoping we can pull that down before we get to shore, otherwise I will be tacking south to Fremantle.

My hope would me to get there in the morning. We shall see how it all unfolds.

    Not much more than a couple of Swiiftsures now Glen. Daytime arrival is a good idea. I have the charts open, and from Rottnest Island to Freemantle Sailing Club looks like a local knowledge area. Keep nursing her Glen
