Indeed, long way from bad Hobart weather. The running was in pretty flat water most of the way north, epic fun. St Jude averaging high teens - topping out at 22.5 for a displacement boat was pretty sporty. First half of the way back was shitty but in the painful way rather than the too hard way. If you can't manage that weather don't go south.
The MOB should be a good wakeup to anyone snoozing on the front. About Time was quick to respond, MOB activated his AIS, we stood by with another just off nth head. Even still, traffic was full-on and we were worried he would get run down.
