Marquesas Passage Day 18

Yesterdays noon-to-noon run was 118 miles. Our friends on Libertad sent a message telling us we should look closer at the fine print on the glossy Downwind Tradewind Sail brochure. The small print mentions variable winds at times, YMMV.
We had a nice sail yesterday afternoon when the winds came up to 18kts for no apparent reason in perfectly clear skies. Last night was light and a little on the rolly side. We are getting close, with about 180 miles to go. If we can knock off half the distance to the island each day, then with the somewhat rude rules of Calculus, we will never actually arrive.

  1. It's uphill from where you are, isn't it? PS: Fatu Hiva is closer.
