Having got the weather forecast yesterday afternoon we decided not to stop
in Minerva Reef but to make straight for Opua. A stop in the reef would
mean a stay of maybe 10 days there before another weather window opened, and
that did not really appeal. A couple of days would have been nice, but we
are keen to get to New Zealand now. We should cross the 180 degree meridian
sometime today, then we are truly halfway round the world!
