Are we there yet

Doldrums - again! Had enough of this between Galapagos and the Marquesas. Not that we can do anything about it. All the other yachts who left Bora Bora at the same time as we did are all reporting the same thing. Thank fully the weather forecast seems closer to reality in this part of the Pacific Ocean and we are hoping for a change later today.
Otherwise blue skies, and it is a jobs day - clean the stainless steel, check the standing rigging, make tea and coffee, blog and two radio nets.
Oyster Moon and ourselves are still catching up daily plus we are in the Puddlejump net along with Whiskers, Impiana, Vekler; to mention just a few. It is reassuring to know that there are other boats closeby.
We are almost halfway to Nuie with 580 Nmiles to go. That looks like another 5 days at sea, at least. And still no wildlife to report!!
Hope all well where ever you are - more news tomorrow.
