Monday 7th May  260 miles to New Caledonia

We have decided to let the wind abate before plugging on with the engine. With 20Kn plus against us we were using a lot of precious diesel to make slow progress into the waves. So we've been 
rolling and pitching in much the same place all last night and today. Its bearable just about and the forecast of lighter winds to come soon keeps are spirits up.

With our new AIS device you can try and find us on your screen by downloading an app. Search for AIS apps -I think I had a free one but can't remember what it is called. You can see all the ships on the high seas but have to know where to look to find us (somewhere north of Norfolk Island). It may tell you our pathetic speed even.
