POS 1:07.604S 179:59.000E
179.99999E, we are officialy in yesterday.
Still 500nm to go and reach Tarawa. Due to Kiribati policy we need to bypass all atolls and go straight to the capital for clearing in. There with a cruising permit we would be allowed to visit the other atolls, which will not happen because this would mean backtrapping our voyage and adding miles and time, a commodity we short off right now. MArshall Islands is our next stop.
Still light breeze, moving ahead at 6kts pace and is HOTTTTTTT, hard to sleep. Heat and boat’s rolling are most favourable conditions for insomnia.
