The old familiar roll.

Day 1
Position 10 31S 141 18W, DMG 116 NM.

We are back at sea and have settled into the familiar routine, although this time the wind and current are favorable and so far the sailing is very pleasant. I spent a big chunk of my 5-hour shift last night out in the cockpit learning the new southern stars and constellations. I have been using a program called "Stellarium"; fantastic, especially when you can take the computer outside (it being dry with little threat of spray) and star gaze in the black southern sky until your heart's content.
