Jessica Watson - Tumble then Dry
Catching up with some washing and hanging them out to dry along the lifelines and rigging.
Jessica and Ella's Pink Lady have reported to be far enough north to be able to start making progress eastward. They're not too far north however to miss the the prevailing tradewinds but far enough away from the nasty lows they encountered down south a few days ago. Sounds like a good plan to me.
They are enjoying some quiet sailing conditions at the moment and what better way to recover and seek out some respite than the relief and comfort you get from listening to your washing flapping in the breeze while reading a book on the foredeck. Perfectly, heavenly...you wouldn't wanna be dead for quids!
Enjoy every moment and stay safe. You and Ella's Pink Lady are champions and very tough cookies indeed!
