Wind light most of the day - very pleasant & relaxed. Sunny with some cloud but not a lot. No rainsqualls! Just mainsail & genoa. Another day of ambling along - mostly at a mere 3-4 knots.
Saw a white-tailed tropic bird several times today & yesterday - I wonder if it nests in Kauai/Hawaii...? Been looking over Pacific charts in more detail & checking over possible route from Marquesas to Australia -lots of possibilities but will stay very flexible! Also gradually getting around to having a look at radio connections, especially ground leads - means a lot of 'digging' for access - so taking my time. Am being heard, but not as well as I should be. And Winlink connections have been impossible yesterday and up to this evening - will see what happens when I try to send this... Finished last of fresh meat for dinner tonight - made a curry with last aubergine & courgette. Lovely moonrise over fairly calm sea.... 1800 GMT position: 11deg 18' N; 115deg 57' W . 24hr distance run by log: 126 n.ml. (due to good wind yesterday afternoon & evening!)
