The first provisions

The morning was spent checking out the new Gillespies Ginger Beer factory out at Barilla Bay. Sam has been a long term supporter, supplying the crew with free ginger beer and even it making it around the coast a few years back. I find the non alcoholic beverage a perfect tonic for those unfortunate enough to feel seasick in the first few days of the voyage.

It was also the Cleanups birthday with two loads of goodies for the crew arriving from Patagonia, Ula helped divvy up the spoils for each of the four boats. Thanks to Matt and Dane at Patagonia Australia.

The forecast is looking better by the day hopefully we can get the two boats from Hobart away sometime tomorrow afternoon.
