Tahiti – Tonga – Day 7

Day 7: 22.08.18 2200 UTC, 1200 BoatTime (UTC-10)
Position: 18:01S 165:47W
COG: 260 SOG: 5,6 (average 24 hrs) Wind: 12 – 28 kn NE – SE Sailed distance: 950 nm Sailed last 24 hours: 135 nm Distance to Tonga: 470 nm
Weather: Nice. Clear sky. Stars, and a big, fat and shining moon!
Sea is still a bit messy, with short and steep waves. Sailing only with the Genoa during the night even though the wind was dropping after midnight. Put up the main before breakfast and are now sailing wing on wing. Wind is fading a bit, but still strong enough to hold the sails in the 2ish meter waves.
Pancakes for lunch and happy kids!
Sea state: 1,5 – 2,5 m.
Fishing: No news.
All is well.
