Noon Position: 15 32.1 S   145 19.5 E
Course: SSE;  Speed: 3.5 knots
Wind: SSW, F3 gentle breeze
Sea: slight  Swell: negligible
Weather: sunny, warm
Day’s Run:  77 nm

Winds have been a bit lighter than forecast and more from the southwest than the southeast.  We were becalmed for much of Kate’s watch last night but, nonetheless, overall we have made steady and comfortable progress.

I was hoping to make Upolu Reef this evening and maybe go for a snorkel tomorrow but the winds are fading again so we have changed course for Low Islet which  is only seven miles away.

All is well.
