Passage To Niue
Day 2, 13 June 2012
We left Bora Bora at 10.00 local time which is - 11 hours (behind) UTC (GMT), on Tuesday the 12 June 12, heading for our next island called Niue.
Log reading at noon is 16286
Noon to Noon distance = 110 miles
Distance to go 933 miles
Very light winds at present which are between 8 to 11 knots, We now have just the genoa up and a small amount of main to balance the boat, and we are making between 4 to 4.5 knots in the right direction.
The wind / weather forecast is still for the wind speed to increase over the next few days, so our passage speed should increase, we hope!!
Just a few sea birds, but nothing else.
Karacool is level pegging with us at present just off to our starboard side.
Next report at noon on the 14 June 12
