We eventually left Bowen for Cape Upstart and again, Yawarra 2 overtook us and snapped some more photos. Ren wishes our sails were fuller. If only we could somehow get a picture (from google?) of us as we are sailing right now on our way to Cape Bowling Green. We have four sails out – all full, it's a gorgeous day. Warm, sunny, surrounded by sparkling green water with the wind pushing us along. Very peaceful.

Nick helped us out (again!) last night. I was complaining about how hot it has been – how it's only September and we are sweating like it's the middle of summer in our little aft cabin (bedroom). Nick got a glazed look in his eyes and said that he recalled Max and Gloria (the builders and original owners of Anhinga who cruising through Asia and Micronesia with Nick and Jan) having the bedroom hatch set so that it faced forwards – not backwards. The 'toe-stubbers' on deck turned out to be the steel for the hatch to be secured from the opposite side so that it now faces forwards – HOORAH! Last night I was actually a bit chilly as the wind flew right down through the hatch and onto me as I slept. I may just be able to survive the tropical summer after all!
