Miles to go: 1070

All is well on board and, having sailed another 15 degrees of longitude west, we've adjusted our boat clock back by another hour. One more time adjustment to go before we make landfall.

The wind has veered to a more SE direction enabling us to make even better progress, with a faster point of sail and our position now appears on our large format Admiralty Polynesia planning chart. It's exciting to see the whole of French Polynesia laid out ahead of us.
