Jeanne made 130nm yesterday. She is assessing the damage to the wind generator and with a spare set of blades aboard she may be able to repair it. The tail is smashed but she thinks something could be cobbled together to make it work again.

It's day 154 and she's at 41.48S 112.30E

Still making good time, Jeanne was at 43.03S 124.21E last night. Yesterday's progress was 134nm. She's making a run for Tasmania before an expected high pressure system kills the wind.

Jeanne was at 43.34S 129.41E on Wed 4 April which is approx. 500nm south of Adelaide. She has lost both monitors on her primary computer due to failures and is now paying the penalty for not doing backups, since her secondary computer was in storage and in fact it took her hours to find it. Meanwhile, no weather faxes and no website updates.

Three metre seas and making 4kt or so.

Jeanne is becalmed at 250nm west of Tassie and today will make an attempt to reconnect the rudder on the main autopilot. She seems to be beset with myriad equipment failures that she can't handle, which is a great pity.

Reception on 7145kHz last night was awesome, had her at readability 5 and strength 8 S-points easily.

Hydrovane autopilot is now fixed and Jeanne celebrated this minor victory last night with a Bundy and mango juice punch. She only made 26nm yesterday and still hasn't decided whether to make a left turn after Tassie and head through the Tasman Sea towards Fiji, or go around Stewart Island off the south of NZ. It depends a lot on the prevailing winds in the next few days.

The journey is going well, with SV Nereida having rounded the southwest cape of Tasmania. She's on the home stretch!

Oops, last message shuld have read "southeast cape".

Position last night was 41.34S 150.52E and making 5 kt. Looks like she decided to head through the Tasman to Fiji.

Day 176, she's at 36 degrees 36 minutes South, 160 degrees 35 minutes East which is almost exactly halfway between Sydney and Auckland. In good spirits and loving the warmer weather.

Last heard a week or so ago Jeanne was just north of New Zealand. I no longer have the ham radio with me but the website map shows her approaching the south of Fiji.

Not much progress in the past 10 days, Jeanne is now just south of Tuvalu in the Pacific.

Since 10 May Jeanne has been without a computer, her backup unit having failed. No email is getting through, although some of it has been read to her via ham radio.

She is WSW of Hawaii at present.
