We got away from Tuncurry/Forster at first light. It's been a slow day, light variable winds, mostly on the nose, so either motoring at 2.5kn, or motor-sailing in the wrong direction at 4. We did some of both, but now doing a respectable 4.5kn towards home. It was a lovely day on the water anyhow, sunny and calm, nice coastline, Seal Rocks, Broughton Islands. We had some close up whale time, one went vertical and poked his head up to watch us for a while. Another popped up in our wake, a bit of a surprise. We should pass Newcastle tonight, and Sydney around lunchtime.
