First day on passage

18deg.52.104S 175deg.14.711E
Well, if we keep this speed, we'll be in Australia in 10 days. Maiken is sailing along in over 6 knots, in fairly small sea. We do bounce around a bit, and as usual it takes a few day to get used to the motion. On this course, we will pass the southern tip of New Caledonia very close, and there is a small chance that we will stop there. Jenny is sleeping and I am reading, so it's a pretty normal day at sea. Fiji was one of the highlights on the trip, and it is easy to see why so many yachties come back year after year. We left Fiji through the Malolo pass right when the sun went down, and with a spectacular sunset our ocean passage began.

Take care,
