At Sea: Half way and head winds

August 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Now checking in with Rag of the Air network on 8173 at 19:00GMT.  Style very different from Des at Opua Offshore communications.  Des is earthy and to the point – very Kiwi.  Rag of the air is giggly and “I did this”. They agree on the weather outlook for us which is good.

Now reached half way. The northern tip of the front went over last night.  20-25knot northerly winds but no rain.

Position: 26°24’S 177°57’E [-26.4,177.95] at local 07:20 26th August, BST 20:20 25th August
24hr run: 100 miles by GPS. 116  miles  by log.
575 miles to Savusavu, Fiji. ETA at 5 knots: 03:08 Tues 31st August local  time
Wind: NNW 10knots was 20-25 overnight
Sky:  Front has passed over now clearer skies
