At sea: Tonga, Niuatoputapu towards Vavau

October 10th, 2009 · No Comments

On route again.  I guess the sadder you are to leave, the more you enjoyed being there. It was very hard to leave Niuatoputapu.

A low is passing to the south of us and the wind is due to go through the north and west before going SE.  So far it has gone from east to SSE!  Sea is smooth so able to keep sailing at the moment.

Position: 16°36′ 174°15′ [-16.606,-174.248] at local 16:00, GMT 05:00 October 10th
135.7 miles to Neiafu, Vavau. ETA at 6 knots:  15:22 11th October local  time
Wind: SSE 7 knots Sea: smooth with SE swell 2m
Sky:  70% cloud cover
