Opua to Port Vila Day 7 - Position report

Position           19:59.68 S 168:55.03 E

Date                1200 (UTC+11) Sunday 24 May 2015

Distance run    162nm over the ground, 153nm through the water

 

More favourable current which is helping give better daily runs, but still with the help of diesel.  Where is this forecast brisk breeze that should give us a fast reach?

 

The forecast front went through at 0500 ish and the wind freed allowing us to motor sail effectively.  This may be cheating but could shorted the trip by at least a day.

 

Here comes the front as shown on our new supa dupa Raymarine radar and plotter
