Today the weather forecast looks acceptable for us. New Zealand´s Met Service predicts for today southwesterly winds with 20 knots. This should provide us with a nice beam reach course.

Before we lift our anchor we are waiting for the start of the westward flowing ebb-current. In the Foveaux Street it will help us with two additional knots of speed.

Around 11:00 hrs we are leaving our anchorage, setting sails and are on our 87 nautical miles passage to the Fiordland.
