Day 1 - Good winds

All is well on board Moondance!

We have definitely had good winds for sailing. After 24 hours, we traveled 162 miles with 344 miles to go. We are happy with our progress so far. Of course, with the good winds comes the lumpy seas, so missed out on some sleep and were tired today. Oh well! The seas seem to be settling down some, but hope we don't lose our good wind. We would like to keep up this pace so that we reach Makemo a day early. The tricky part, the passes into the island can only be entered at slack tide so you have to have good timing or wait until the next day - wish us luck!

Other than that, nothing exciting to report. We spent the day getting organized, stashing our bounty of fruit, and napping. Fun, fun, fun!
