Position:  10:25.3 S 136:59.3 W

COG: 260

SOG: 3.0

Current: 0.9 kn , 260 gr

Sea temperature: 27.8

Waves: 1 m

Wind: 7 N E

Sailed last 24 hours: 108 (Motor through the night.)

Distance to Fatu Hiva: 105 nm

Weather: Very nice. Now sort of sailing with poled out genoa, and the cutter to the lee. Nice weather all night. And very warm.

ETA: Sunday. But we shall have to run the engine for a while to get there, I suppose. The windsteering has been disconnected due to almost no wind. That means that we consume more electric power. A sunny day will help.

No contact with Alutia on SSB this morning.

Another night…

Today tidying up the boat a little before landfall sometime tomorrow. Baking bread.

Everything is well on board.
