At Sea: Getting hotter…

August 24th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Seeing the cold and warm ocean signs but it’s still cold at night.  Today is the first time the day’s sun has felt hot.  Motoring at the moment as the wind died out at 04:00.  Sextant lessons, checking out the Lazerette for any slow leaks and more tidying on the list for today.

24hr run:  138 miles by GPS.
789 miles to Savusavu, Fiji. ETA at 5 knots:  23:00 Mon 30th August local time
