Another quiet day on passage, the highlight of which was a clebratory block of chocolate to mark passing the half-way point (thanks Alboms for providing the choccy - much obliged).
At this stage we are shooting for a Thursday PM arrival at Oyster Island in Vanuatu, fingers crossed for favourable weather. Unfortunately the wind has died out somewhat, so we are motorsailing making 7 knots in an attempt to stay ahead of the "speed required" to make our arrival. As much as we love Yanni the companionway troll for his unerring reliability, he really is a noisy little chap!
Until tomorrow, shipmates,
