Passage Update: Day 6

Our seventh day at sea starts about now, just as the wind is finally filling in. It's been a dreary day. Low clouds, no wind, misty rain. We've been doing all the rainy day things: reading, sleeping, and eating. Mostly eating.

We just put two reefs in the main, hoisted the staysail and unfurled the genoa. Going nicely at 6.4kts with 15 knots of wind from the NW. It should continue to build throughout the night and hopefully we'll see the miles start ticking away.

We've had the lines out the past two days. Still no fish though.

At 15-May-16 8:46 PM (utc) our position was 33�02.58'S 170�07.17'W
