Location: Underway to South Africa in the Indian Ocean
A day to go, we have been in a slow patch and had the engine going for a while but now the wind has picked up to get us to Richards Bay ahead of the oncoming south westerlies. Watches continue with the last of the snacks making a welcome appearance on deck. Marine Biology Exam was today so studying until the early hours was the theme of the night, for those of us not taking it the sun decided to shine and gave us a nice afternoon. We put the clocks back two hours after lunch to get ready for landfall so we had a nice early sunset. We will arrive at the entrance to Richards Bay tomorrow morning at around 3 am so rolling waves will make it another interesting night of sleep.
