Around dusk last night some wind arrived and gradually strengthened so that at one stage it was steady at 30 knots. The seas are horrible and lumpy which means  no rhythm and now easy way through them.
We are still in the thunderstorm belt and saw lots of lightening during the night. Today we have thunder rumbling all around us.
We hope to arrive in Niue around mid day tomorrow.
