Day 3 - Western Samoa to Fiji

LATITUDE: 16-15.10S; LONGITUDE: 178-28.65W
Miles traveled in 24 hours: 133
Miles to Savu Savu, Fiji: 152 (we will be there tomorrow afternoon - yeah!)

Well, things are always changing out here!

Yesterday, we went from having a good sail to losing our wind completely. I big storm passed in front of us dropping lots of rain. We stayed dry, but the storm took our wind. So, we ended up motoring all night. Not what we planned, but you do what you have to do...

Today, we have lots of wind (a little too much in my opinion), plus lots of clouds. So far, we are still dry except for the water splashing us along the port side.

We just took our first turn into the Nanuku Passage, which is the northeast passage into Fiji. Thanks to Carol (s/v Evergreen) for the waypoints! We haven't seen any land yet, but hope to before the end of the day.

It will be good to have this last passage over. We have beers chilling in the fridge for the celebration tomorrow. Wish you were here to celebrate with us!
