Finally a beantiful night after a nice day. 10% cloud and an almost full moon! We are still rocking as the sustained 20+ winds have built up quite a wave surge. We have about 530 nm to go and are in Neverland”; south of our destination of Hiva-Oa. We are hoping for a day of South wind so we can move North without gybing. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters. Sent via Inmarsat. The mobile satellite company

Another crummy night of rain showers. Wind is 25+, strongest we have seen in the Pacific. Since we have a minor issue with the rig we have been tracked by the USCG. We crossed over some line. The French out of Tahati now have our back. Sailing along. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters.

Dawn after a night off light rain showers. Becalmed for about 2 hours. Wind filling in and getting back some way. Everything in the cockpit is wet. 1744 nm to go to Nuka-Hiva, Marquesas. Yesterday we moved Davyd s kiteboard from under the dinghy to inside Reboot. It was sitting on top of the hatch for the forward stateroom. The stateroom was very damp and needed more airflow. We picked up the dinghy, untied the kiteboard bag, moved it, and resecured the dinghy. On the bow in 6 foot seas. Fun! As I write XO is sunning himself on the Lido deck a.k.a. Davyd s lap. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters. Sent via Inmarsat. The mobile satellite company

Last night we had a spot of trouble. As the wind picked up we started to further furl the jib when the sheet jammed fron an override on the drum. We rigged a backup sheet. We were able to clear the drum and restore normal operation. Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters. Sent via Inmarsat.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas

Lets Last night I stopped at “The Harbor”, a local yachted bar here in Sint Maarten. As I was sitting quietly watching the salsa lesson who should show up but Alex, my crew from the Chesapeake Bay whose visit was interrupted by a hurricane. We had a wonderful reunion. This just proves tha old adage, what happens on the cursing circuit does not stay on the cruising circuit. Fair winds and following seas 🙂
