120 miles to go and slow progress. Yesterday lunchtime we came out of the high pressure and into the trough. The wind picked up and came from the West then South, we are sailing but with reduced sails, 4 reefs in the main plus the working jib making the best course we can toward Opua. We expect the seas to go down as we get shelter from the land this evening and then the wind will probably start to decrease early in the morning. Arrive Opua sometime tomorrow.
