Day 2 has dawned with blue skies and a hot sun--looks like lovely weather. But the wind--as forecast--is light and fickle. Since leaving Tonga nearly 24 hours ago, we have had the engine on and off 3 times--total 4 hours motoring--when the wind just died on us. At other times we've had up to 20 knots of wind and have been sailing fast.
We're now back on the engine and I fear may be so for much of the rest of the trip--at least according to the forecast. However with it come sunny skies and calm blue seas--so we'll just enjoy it!
We expect to arrive Fiji sometime Thursday.
All well on board.
