We are now well into the tropics and the weather has acted to form. Clear sky and waaarm sun . The wind has not dropped as expected and is a good 15/20 knt from the west giing uss 6.5 knt oer the ground and prospect of arriVing in Va Vau tomorrow afternoon , Careful night ahead because this is where it staarts to get rocky and shallow. Should get good photos of the Kao and Tofua olcanoes as be pass them just before dark tonight
