Remarks: Hot and calm day transiting the Torres Strait. Pulled it off in 18 hours, not bad. Olde Tyme ships might take weeks. We had some nice cooling breezes as we slipped out of Prince Of Wales Channel and into the Arafura Sea. Work continues on deck with Lyra and Jeremie making ratlines, Clara servicing bunt blocks, Liam practicing wire splices and Violet, Diane, and Rachel seaming sail. Dan is caulking a new plank. Power shower shortly to be sure!
