Weather: Nice! Some squalls during the day.
What a final leg. Wind picked up last night and has been steady 15-25 kt all the way in. A bit rolly with the bigger waves, but a big relief on the speed (without diesel :-)) Pretty nice to watch Fatu Hiva appear in the morning mist on the last night watch of this epic leg. We are so near we can smell it now. Cold beer/wine/coke and a nice bath in the bay are waiting.
Sea state: 1,5 – 2,5 m swell from E.
Fishing: No news.
CsB went for it yesterday, and are about 10 nm in front of us now.
All is well.
