COG: 266
SOG: 7.9
Current: 1,1/ 237 gr.
Sea temperature: 26.9 C
Wind: ca 18 kn SE.
Sailed last 24 hours: 135 nm.
Distance to Fatu Hiva: 1711 nm
Weather: No rain, the night started with moon shine, later cloudy (mist).
22-24 knots through the night, abated to 16 – 19 kn in the morning. Lazy night, slow progress. Sailed with just reefed genoa. Wind steering saves power. Two hours watches, good sleep for everyone, but need a nap during the day.
Day for water production, plan for 60 liters.
Tried fishing, but no luck. The seas are not that uncomfortable now, everything is well on board.
