At 14:53GMT (2:53am local time) at, 175:56w, we crossed the equator. The time was earlier than expected because the wind veered to the SE, allowing us to fall off a little. This increased our speed and we still maintained a NE course which gave Baker Island a very good clearance. I celebrated with a few sips of a nice Tasmanian single malt whisky and some S. African mango juice but left the main party until midday.It has been another glorious day of sailing in the S.E. Trades and I had my party with music, singing and dancing. I opened a nice bottle of bubbly and had some Brie and pate on crackers.

24hr DMG to 2300GMT: 113 n.ml. Strait of Juan de Fuca: 3887 n.ml
