Niue's Near

We are about 140 miles away from Nuie tonight. It is cold on watch -- 72*F, or an even colder 22*C. Overcast and the moon hasn't come up yet. As one boat described it on the HF radio, its like being in the English Channel. Except we haven't seen a ship or another cruising boat in almost a 1,000 miles. We've been making really good days sailing, typically 180 miles days. We should make it into Nuie before dark tomorrow. It will be tomorrow our time, but day after tomorrow Nuie time. Nuie is past the dateline which means at some point soon we loose a day. Hope it s not my birthday we loose.
