At sea: No wind

October 11th, 2009 · No Comments

Weather charts have a nice force 3 northerly wind but we have had none for 14 hours now just a whisper from the SW.  Spent from 07:00 to 14:00 no sails up with an oily sea all around.  I think this has been our longest spell of no wind at sea to date.

Position: 17°44′ 174° 19′ [-17.73,-174.32] at local 16:00, GMT 03:00 11th October
69 miles to Neiafu, Vavau, Tonga. ETA at 5 knots: 06:28  12th October local time
