Another sunny day with 8knt breze this time from S/E.No swell to indicate likelyhood of more wind.Managing 4.7 knt and back to pointing at Fatu Hive .Both islands are 130nm away.A washer has worn through on the gooseneck and will need replacing tomorrow.Simple task but shows wear and tear of what is for many four seaons sailing in four weeks.Need that tin opener as supply of food with pull tops is running low.It is also a bit of a pot luck with the labelling which is fading.Last night was ´confiture de poulet´.Very tasy but I was expecting casoulet and rather greasy on it´s own.This was the day I should have arrived but tomorrow all being well.
