Very light following and variable wind.Most of the day with main to starboard and genoa out to port with spinnaker pole or vice versa.Finally decided to alter course to Hiva Oa. this is a little to north of Fatu Hiva But does allow us to sail allbeit at 4knt.This island is exposed to swell;of which there is litle at present  but does have a few shops and I can clead immigration there.Expect to arrive Monday morning local.Now UTC-9 but have not changed yet.Between changing sails and humping spinnaker poles have spent the day finishing ´Blue at the Mizzen´
No engine keep it pure.
