Tough sailing

Pos 10:20.15S 141:29.6W
Sunday 23rd of December

After 3 hard days of sailing against the wind we are now 100NM from the Ua Poa wich is nearest of the Marquesas Islands.
The wind is approx. 25 knots on the nose and the waves have built up. We have broken the genoa heet 3 times on this leg. I need to get stronger ones!

Hopefully we will get into harbour on Christmas Eve.

All is well,
Lars
