Another fantastic day and night in the Pacific Ocean. Some wind shifts during the night kept us awake on the night watch. This morning we changed the mainsail over to port to sail a more westerly (less south) course. Working well so far. Tuna is still great. We now have less than 1000 nm. to Fatu Hiva. Should be possible to cover in 7 or 8 days more or less.
All is well.

I am the Captain of this ship, and I have my Wife´s permission to say so!
