Location: Two days out from Australia

Today has been the best sailing all semester. The morning finally brought a break in the clouds and some beautiful blue skies. With the sun came the wind, and lots of it. By 9:00, we were reaching high speeds again. The increase in speed forced us to reef the mainsail to slow us down a bit, but we were still at an incredible 10.5 knots. By 3:00, we had broken our own record and hit a 228 nautical mile day. We hope that tomorrow will be another record-breaking day.
