The wind kept pushing us South and when it got to the
point we were sailing SSE we tacked and headed West.There had been another series of light
rain squalls and shortly after we tacked the front came through and the wind
settled into a SSE direction at about 15 knots.
At the moment stars peep through the cloud cover and
there are occasional glimpses of the waning moon. Were doing 8 knots and are
back on the Rhumb Line, pointing 10 degrees South of course which may be helpful

The winds gone down again to ESE 7/8 knots andwe’re making 5 knots or so.
Yesterday’s run wasa modest 158 miles not all of it directly towards Rarotonga as we only
gained 129 miles overall.369 to
