Distance to Fatu Hiva: 2475 nm
Weather: Nice, bright stars last night.

A beautiful night, stars, good winds, variable in strength 15 - 22 knots, but from the same direction all night. It was the first time sailing through the night. We are in the trade winds. South East trade winds, the Coconut Milk Route.
Anne Sofie enjoys her watches, and Eva and I now feel they are ok. Two cargo ships past us this morning, 5 - 8 nm behind us on a northerly course.
After more than three days at sea, everything feels natural, and we have adapted. Still fresh fruit, and newly baked bread each second day.
Fresh water is produced each second day, and the days without water production the solar panels produce enough electric power. But we have shut down the Multi Functional display most of the time. There is no need for maps out here, and rarely use of the radar. Saves a lot.
Everything well on board.
