Distance to Fatu Hiva: 2005 nm (One third is just passed. We have bee out for exactly one week, and day 8 has begun.)
Weather: Raining, raining during the night and after daybreak not.

Baking bread, drying up solar charging, talking to Alutia on SSB, reading, trying to learn some French expressions (Bien eh?) Gaining strength for the next night. And always using at least one hand to avoid falling. The seas are better, but not pleasant.
And today we promise to start fishing. The gear is ready.

The wind steering is keeping the course today.

Everything well onboard.
