(Details of Satphone call received 11:30am)
Anyone who has watched the film Finding Nemo will know all about the EAC. Or should I say, the East Australian Current. Well, in the face of light easterlies the good ship Chimere is working its way north straight into the EAC which is running south at around 2-3 knots. Consequently progress is slow … or maybe that should read currently slow.

A satphone call was received this morning and all aboard were described as “well”. From experience I think that’s nautical-speak for “finding sea-legs”, “still aboard” and “focusing on the important tasks at hand”. Which to date has not included sending back a Ships Log. Hence this note from me.
But I’m assured a message is on its way, describing life aboard, some time in the next 24 hours.
This Ships Log is a relayed message from a Sat Phone call, with the key takeaway message being that everyone is doing fine and sends their luv 2 yoos all.
