Lovely sailing

12deg52.983S 143deg16.903W 19:15L

We are currently on the way to the atoll of Fakarava. The sailing has been lovely so far and we are making really good speed. The wind and sea is dropping for every hour that passes, but we still have enough for Maiken to glide ahead in 5 to 6 knots. It has been really hot the last few days, and pearls of sweat runs down your back as soon as you try to do some chores inside. We have begun to listen to the cruiser net on the SSB radio in the morning, it is a bit more interesting now that you know some of the people that are reporting in. We have caught 3 small tunas the last two days, and that is after just having the line in the water for a few minutes, it is almost absurd. H�kan has been making sashimi and tuna curry, it has been nice that the fish has been of a smaller size, so that there isn't so much waste.

Take care,
