Passage Update: Day 17

After another night of heaving to, we are feeling fresh and well rested. While the wind howled outside, we took turns sleeping and keeping watch throughout the night. We've discussed it and decided that the only thing that would making heaving to better in those conditions would be pizza delivery.

Today has been much gentler on the boat and we're finally making some decent progress again. We're on course for Raivavae with a promising weather forecast and only 185 nautical miles left to go. If all goes well, that puts us in the lagoon in about 40 hours time. And that means we only have 40 hours to catch a big fat yellowfin. Pressure's on.
