It is lovely when the sails are out and full with no engines. We are sailing at 5.5 knots and have been since yesterday afternoon. And Stehen has foiled the squeek in the sheets with a secret recipe!! Every time the mainsail flaps, the ropes creak and sends us all demented!! But not any more.
Bora Bora is 200 miles behind us now with 834 miles to go to Niue. The wind is steady at 12-15 knots from the east. No wildlife sightings other than a few birds (some kind of booby, we think).
More tomorrow, bw's from Karacool.
