Zen Again has now been in Exmouth for three days. The weather was overcast on Thursday and for most of Friday. A thunderstorm on Friday appeared to blow the cloud away and since then it has been clear and sunny. The temperature is very pleasant, particularly at night when it is cool.

Icecube did the 2011 Fremantle-Bali race but retired to Exmouth and has spent three years here. They are preparing for a cruise to Indonesia and the Philippines. Icecube is a very fast-looking Schonning (sp?) catamaran with lots of carbon fibre. I spent a couple of hours helping Kevin with his HF radio and we tried out routine calling via DSC which worked very well.

I plan to depart tomorrow around midday which is an hour or so before high tide. I hope to carry the ebb tide to NW cape and hopefully will find a nice sailing breeze. It looks like winds will be light for the next few days, but hopefully I'll be able to sail for much of the time.
