We are sailing along the coast of somoaq towards Apia which is 15 kn away.Last night was better, a staedy 5knt from 11 knt of following breeze. The heavy clouds from the comnvection zone that has plagued us for the past week were still ominously close astern of us. Pitch dark no moon and few stars only the bright lights of American  Samoa on the port horizon.
We will probably have to anchor this evening and go into the new marina tomorrow . Even so we look forward to an evening without rolling and a cold beer.
