November 17, 2011-Sailing from Port Elizabeth to Knysna.
Saw a sailboat abeam of us outside, couldn't raise him on the radio. We crossed ahead and left him astern within an hour. Wonder who it was?
Gybed at noon; 103 miles to go. Poled out the jib and now sailing down the rhumb line at 6.6 knots. Hope to make the tide at Knysna by 09:00 tomorrow.
Had a little left over lamb curry in the freezer. Wasn't much for lunch so I dumped in a carton of yogurt. Heated it and a Portugese Bun, and had a glass of red wine.
Remember the meals we had crossing the Indian Ocean, Pierre, and the glasses of wine sometimes more than we needed?
