Brief message, not a lot to report and conditions a bit lumpy to sit at Nav table for any length of time.
0900 est we are 100 nm west of Lord Howe Island squally weather.  Making good time, covered about 330 miles in 44 hours, average of about 7.5kts and getting into the routine of life at sea; sleeping, on watch, snacks, holding on, trimming sails, checking gear, sleeping, on watch, reading, checking gear, holding on, snacks …
We are giving the batteries a good charge each day with the new generator.  No need to make any freshwater with the onboard desal plant yet.  Still have 800 litres in tanks
Cheers for now,

Hi All,
About 25 nm nth of Lord Howe Island still fairly rough but wind is getting warmer.
We traveled 229 nm yesterday which I believe is a record for Chimere!
