Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall charting our adventures as we sail around the world. We're sailing up and down the east coast of Australia after a summer back in Britain.

Day 5- eating up those miles

Our position as at 23.00 GMT, Wednesday 15th May:
 
05 degrees 27 minutes south, 99 degrees 24 minutes west
 
Distance run in last 24 hours: 174 nm
 
A quick update to report that all's well on board Maunie with fantastic progress westwards. We're unsure how to celebrate reaching 100 degrees west but we'll come up with something as the milestones are important on this passage. We certainly won't be looking how far we have ahead of us but will enjoy ticking off the 1000, 2000 and 3000 markers!
 
Winnie remained in full control last night, allowing us both to get to know the amazing night sky packed with stars. Hoping for more of the same tonight.
 
Heidi and Peter on Stormvogel are just behind us and they're doing fine. It's great to sail with them but we'd better check that they haven't secretly rigged a towing line!
