Day 2, as expected, was not as fun a day. We knew there would be some NW wind and mixed seas. And, the weather delivered it. We made good speed, averaging close to 8 kts most of the day. But, we were holding Tahina back in order to prevent the motion from getting worse. All of us had a bit of seasickness by the end of the day.
Fortunately, the winds finally clocked around during the night. The ride was much better, and everyone held their watches. It’s just before dawn now and we’re making 9-10 knots, even with double reefs in the sails, and we’re on a broad reach. That means the ride is much smoother.
Last night I filed our advanced notice of arrival to Fiji saying we would arrive Friday. We can change that if the weather alters our speed. Who knows, maybe we’ll get there on Thursday!
