169 miles completed in the last 24 hours
301 miles to go to Vanuatu weigh point
We decided that as the wind seemed to want to blow us to Vanuatu it was pointless trying to fight it. Changed course this afternoon for Tanna Island in the Vanuatu group. It will be a whistle stop stay, 3 to 4 days max as we have to be leaving New Cal for Australia by the 29th. Soooo the plan today is: sail to Tanna hopefully arriving the 18th in the afternoon. Stay until the 22nd then one and a half day passage to NC, arriving the 24th. 4 days in NC then a 6 day passage to Bundy in Aus, eta 3rd Sept. All that weather dependant.
