Fw: Day 4, engine off and sailing

Position, 13.35S 160.24W

For the first time since leaving Bora Bora we have been able to give the faithfull Yanmar a rest and we have the Parasailor paying for its keep. The wind direction is still dead behind but the strength has increased to 12 to 16kts.
We have been trailing two lures for the past two days but sadly, not a single strike. Our companions on Southern Princess hooked a 4ft Mahi Mahi yesterday and then lost it before getting it aboard.
Sue's leg appears to be healing well and she is hoping to be able to swim again by the time we get to Tonga.
