Wed July 25 GMT

One week since we left on this 3rd and final leg of the passage from Aus to Victoria. Whatever prayers you loyal fans are offering, keep it up! At the risk of saying it (touch wood), this leg has been near idyllic so far! Constant steady tradewinds in the 10-20 kt range, close reaching and seas not too lumpy. Having my son on board is wonderful! Not only does he 'hand, reef and steer' but he knows how to trim sails almost as well as his old man :) Not to mention good company with stimulating conversation. We are even into cooking! Forecast is good at this point for the next few days. Thanx for the wx routing 'Argonaut'!! (of course the winds just died out and we are motoring to find more)
