Finally on the move
After 5 quite boring days hanging at Paroe Bay we finally had break from strong (20 knots +) South East winds and managed to move a staggering 15 miles south to a bay called Dayu. Took us almost 6 hours! No easy task trying to go up wind on 10 to 15 knots wind on the nose. We stopped quite early as Russ is very reluctant to burn diesel and beat into wind. I guess eventually he will give in and just tear up some dollar notes and motor down. It's been already 2 weeks and we made so little headway that it's getting into our nerves, especially with so many reports of good surf down south! So pray for light winds and for a generous Russ!
