Position at 1500 AEDT 34:33:20S 164:28.1E
Wind SSE 18-20 knots, triple reefed main 40% headsail.
Overnight as forecast the wind backed into the south making for a vey unpleasant and uncomfortable evening. Everyone not on watch has now got their heads down, taking the opportunity to catch up on sleep we weren't able to get last night.
We now have just over 400nm to go until landfall, which weather permitting we will make before sunset on Wednesday. Too early to call yet, but hopeful of arrival at Opua PM Thursday.
