Team Sandpiper Update 3 Nov 2006

  • Noon Position 21'28.1S/155'09.6E
  • 250nm to Bundaberg/Aus
  • 750nm from Port Vila Vanuatu
  • 115nm last 24hrs
  • winds 5-10E
  • seas calm

Our great wind has finally blown away and we have had very light winds all day averaging 3 knots. This is ok though as we really needed to slow down as we want to make Bundaberg after 5pm on Sunday night as customs charges $160.00 for clearing in boats on the weekend and if we get there after they go home in Sunday night we can anchor and clear in on Monday morning, so for now light winds are good. Really nice sunny day today with flat seas barely putting along with a full moon tonight, really nice sailing!
More in 24
