Westerly winds

Finally we got this long anticipated weather window of westerly winds and we’ll be riding it from the beginning to the end. Slow first day but now we’re getting into the groove. 5+ knots and a massive cloud formation on the horizon with distinct mare’s tales promise more pressure. Too good that we’re running downwind, with 1m chop and 4m swell, beating would be terrible. But this just shows how clever we are ;-) Spirit’s are up as usual… batteries down (as usual, too)

160 nm done so far, further 450 nm to go before turning northwards direction Fiji after rounding Norfolk in the South.
