Title: Day 4 - Wild night out!

Date: 27 August, 1200 local time (GMT -10)
Position: 17:50.8S 160:24.8W
Day's run: 155nm 2nd best day's run ever!
Course: 249
Distance to run: 157nm

We've eaten up the miles in the last 24 hours. With 2 reefs in the main and a well rolled jib we've been hurtling along under strong SE trades. With the jib poled out we remain dry but drop to leeward of our track. With the jib and main out to starboard and harder on the wind we take water in the cockpit, this is how we spent the night! Still, we're going well and will hopefully reach Palmerston tomorrow.
