Position: 6:13.4 S 100:02.4 W
COG: 262
SOG: 6.9
Current: 0.8/ 260 gr.
Sea temperature: 26.7 C
Wind: ca 18 kn SE - Reached 27 kn in a squall last night.
Sailed last 24 hours: 160 nm.
Distance to Fatu Hiva: 2315 nm
Weather: Nice, first bright stars last night, then lasting, lots of rain.

Now we have typical trade wind conditions. The spirit is good. Charging is good, but we had to run the engine for three hours while boiling coffee and producing water.
We have almost sailed one fourth of the distance. Today we have planned to start fishing. So far only flying fishes and squid coming onboard during the night.

Nobody remembered to bring a quiz book, so we make our own, today we shall try 10 questions each.

Everything is well onboard.
