The strong winds and rough sea followed us untill our arrival at Minerva South reef today at 1000hs .We are the only boat here hundreds of milesfrom anywhere inside a feef  which encloses a 3 mile  across logoon but is covered at high water  so they we appear to be anchored in the middle of the ocean . Our five and a half day crossing from NZ was pretty ast and hard work for the Skipper            . We willspenda few days here and wait for the winds to moderate . chris
