Underway position at 5PM local: 16°07.8471 S 147°15.5352 W
Spectacular fast sailing today on our way to Tahiti. So far today our worst hours run is 8.3 nautical miles and our best 9.7 nautical miles with a lots of surf into the teens and a top speed of 15.7 knots. We slipped the mooring at 9:30AM this morning and it looks like we'll still be able to pull off a single overnight run to Tahiti. Our Easterly 25 knots of wind is forecast to drop to 10 knots in the next 24 hours so, we'll likely drop off our current 200+ nautical miles per day pace.
That's it for now.
