Happy Halloween!!

Another day of great sailing with wind right off the Port beam and made another 138 miles! We were hoping to make it to Bundaberg on Monday morning, but as we are making such good time we are expecting to show up on Sunday where customs will charge us another $150.00 in overtime for checking in on a weekend, so we are still deciding on what we want to do. Since this rally in not a race boats all left at different times and Sandpiper is right in the middle, and there are 3 Sandpipers as well just to confuse everyone. Sandpiper U.K. has already arrived, Sandpiper catamaran is a day behind us, our friends on Blue Sky are 108nm behind us and friends on Sheriaz are 48nm ahead of us.

More in 24,

Tom, Amy and Ron
