Ian McFarlane reported after sojurning at Pittwater for  some weeks Kingurra left Sydney around 6:30pm Feb 6. On Weds Feb 7 Kingurra was flying down the coast at 9-10 over the ground with a good current assist of around 2 knots. Expected to be at Eden soon after Feb 7 midnight. It’s all go for the post card boat of the Admirals Cup 50th Anniversary Fleet to be racing racing with the Classic fleet next Sunday.

It is a beautiful sunny day on the NSW coast.  Motor sailed from 3:30am til 9am in <10kn. Had a few hours of spinnaker run this morning as the breeze built Breeze now back to 20kn NE and doing 7 to 8 kn on course for Gabo Island.  Nice to have a bit of current with us on the return journey.
