We are still motoring but have altered our course so we are pointing west of our destination in the hope of giving ourselves a better angle on the wind for our final approach to Opua. The wind (what there is of it) has now gone round to the west and we are just waiting for it to get strong enough to sail. Yesterday afternoon we were surrounded for a while by a fleet of tiny jellyfish, all with a translucent, semicircular sail set above the surface of the sea. We’ll have to check what they were when we arrive.
Our last noon to noon run was 120 miles and we have 300 to go.
