The `Namita Rose' and crew left Townsville at 5:30am E.S.T. and at 10:30am were a few miles off Dunk Island. Expecting to be in Cairns in about 3 1/2 hours….Good sailing so far today. 12:40pm E.S.T. arrived in Cairns, difficulty finding a place to moor for the day and night to prepare for the big open sea leg, but eventually had some success.
