The Great Blue

Just when I was telling Jean-Francois how much I was unimpressed by
this pacific ocean, at last, we have had a day where at times we could
not see one cloud in the sky.
Other than that, we have spent the last day battling with an
inconsistent wind to gain some north in our course so that we can sail
with both sails on the same side, It has been tough as the wind at times
was almost dying. And the result is not a very good day. We covered 129
nautrical miles over the ground but we only closed on Fatu Hiva by 119.
We now think that we might not get there before August 20. No change in
the ETA in Papeete. If need be, we will shorten our stay in the Marquesas.
