8PM boat time
Position at 0400 April 22, 2012 UTC: 06°10'S 133°49'W
Day 18 -- About 275nm remaining to Hiva Oa, Marquesas.
Due to limited bandwidth with Sailmail, we'll keep this short.
Lots of squalls today, but fast sailing with an average boat speed over 8 knots. Looks like we are about 48 hours out of Hiva Oa which would put us there after dark by a few hours. So, no rush as we will need to slow down to make landfall in the daylight early on the morning of April 24, 2012. All is well aboard.
