The ever reliable steady trade winds have abandoned us. Oh woe! We are currently drifting under the drifter hoping some wind will arrive soon. It does not look promising.

Some good news, I received an email from the customs officer in Hilo yesterday which stated that we could enter Hawaii in Hilo and organise quarantine of RC from there. So, unless I hear any instructions to the contrary, we are heading for Hilo, though my ETA of Monday is looking rather shaky.

All is well.
